The leading authority on all aspects of family law

28 MAY 2010

Professional Ethics; Counsel Acting in Family Proceedings

RACHEL LANGDALE and RICHARD MILLER QCs, Members of the Bar Council Professional Practice Committee

Family lawyers will be familiar with the professional judgments which arise when clients reveal material in conference which is unhelpful to their case, but may be relevant to the court in assessing the needs of the subject child. Knowledge of the law in respect of legal professional privilege, privilege against self-incrimination, the duty of confidentiality and duties to the court generally is crucial.
