The ACT Law Society represents, advances, and defends the interests of an independent legal profession in the ACT. We also protect the public interest in the ACT system of justice through the efficient regulation of the profession in accordance with the Legal Profession Act and the Society’s Rules for Solicitors.
The ACT Law Society’s Government Law Committee is proud to present the Spring 2016 Government Law Afternoon. This event is designed for lawyers working within, or involved with, government departments, and covers all four core areas. There will also be a gathering at a nearby drinks venue following completion of the afternoon.
Covert surveillance, telecommunications interception, and public sector whistleblowing have created ‘Client 2.0’ for lawyers. This situation requires a wider concept of professional responsibility for government lawyers and gives rise to emergent ethical considerations for private sector practitioners. To do your duty to your client, you must think beyond your client. Topical. Controversial. Confronting. Just like Client 2.0.
