Professional Responsibility in New Zealand

Professional Responsibility in New Zealand provides expert commentary on the professional obligations of lawyers, mediators and non-lawyer advocates; including annotated legislation, topic-based commentary on issues outside of the relevant legislation, and updates on important case law to help practitioners stay across changes in the law.

It will also allow lawyers to stay up to date with any changes in the law around professional responsibility, find answers to their legal ethics questions quickly, and learn how to navigate difficult ethical issues, such as when the opposing party is a lay litigant.
