What Can Hollywood Teach Us About Legal Ethics?
Ethics and Professional Responsibility
CPD Points 1
All films and television shows about lawyers provide the opportunity to analyse whether or not the lawyer characters have acted in an ethically appropriate manner. In particular, lawyers can assess whether different characters’ behaviour would be ethically appropriate in the lawyer’s own jurisdiction.
This course draws on a number of examples from different films and television shows to illustrate different aspects of ethical and unethical behaviour by lawyer characters. The course primarily uses the Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules 2015 as the basis for examining whether or not the conduct of the lawyer characters in each of the scenarios is ethical or unethical.
