Solicitors as moral compasses and new consent law
The Law Society recently hosted an important panel discussion on the role of solicitors as the moral compass for their clients, featuring Dr Simon Longstaff, Executive Director of the Ethics Centre, Daniel Csillag, Senior Legal Counsel and General Manager, Company Secretariat, ASX, and Linden Barnes, Senior Ethics Solicitor at the Law Society. The focus was primarily on inhouse solicitors, where the client is also the employer. However, it is a role which can arise for any solicitor, whatever their area of practice.
