Description

These notes cover all the relevant material, including case summaries, legislation and some policy remarks. They assisted me in the final take-home exam. I received an overall 78/D for this unit.

Topics Included:
1. DUTY TO OBEY THE LAW
2. RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE COURT
3. SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES IN CIVIL MATTERS
4. SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES IN CRIMINAL MATTERS
5. CONFIDENTIALITY
6. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
7. TRUSTS ACCOUNTING AND COSTS
8. ADMISSION TO PRACTICE
9. COMPLAINTS, DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDINGS AND SANCTIONS

This unit is generally not as difficult as other core units, but can be tedious with the ASCR/Bar Rule requirements and case law. These notes ensure an easy-to-follow format to implement directly into the exam or to understand the content better for the quizzes.

Enjoy!
