The ABA Ethics Committee presents a discussion about the cab rank principle.
The cab rank principle is an important ethical obligation for barristers. However, it is often understood or applied in different ways by different people.
What is its purpose? How should it be applied in your practice? Should its expression in rule 17 of the Bar Conduct Rules be amended?
Join distinguished speakers, Rowena Orr KC (Solicitor-General for Victoria) and Saul Holt KC (8 Petrie Terrace Chambers) in conversation facilitated by Maree Norton (Dever’s List and Malthouse Chambers) and Angela Petrie (Culwulla Chambers).
CPD POINT: This seminar may be eligible for 1 CPD point under State CPD programs. It is the responsibility of the individual member to determine whether CPD points can be earned for an attendance of an event hosted by the ABA, as the mandatory continuing professional development requirements vary between each state and territory.
