Legal Ethics in a post-Covid world (English Language)


What impact has Covid, and the changing working environment, had on lawyers’ ethical duties? Can clients opt out of the protection legal ethics provide to them? To what extent does a lawyer have an ethical duty to use the latest technology? To what extent does a law firm have an ethical duty to be good value for money?

This and many more questions like them will be part of this course, which examines the nature of legal ethics, reflects on the draft Code of Conduct under consideration in Dubai and then explores how new working practices intersect, and occasionally conflict, with traditional legal ethics.
