Third International Legal Ethics Conference

13 July 2008 12:00 pm - 16 July 2008 12:00 pm
Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa, Gold Coast

The Third International Legal Ethics Conference will be held on Australia's beautiful Gold Coast on 13-16 July 2008.

The 2008 conference will build on the foundations set by its predecessors in 2004 and 2006. Under the umbrella theme of Integrity in Legal Practice, it will provide an opportunity to

  • take stock of both achievements and failings in the international legal ethics project to date
  • explore current questions about lawyers' ethical responsibilities
  • anticipate and discuss aspects of lawyers' likely ethical challenges into the future

The primary aim of the conference is to provide a forum for informed and lively debate within the various conference themes.

The conference will be designed to cater for both scholars and legal practitioners, with a designated "practitioners’ day" which will include papers, presentations and discussions of particular relevance to practising lawyers.

The conference themes embrace international perspectives, and will provide delegates from Australia and abroad with opportunities to hear and share ideas and arguments that have implications for "lawyering" across jurisdictions.
