Ethics are an integral part of the legal profession. Ethics are important because they imbue a sense of orderliness and professionalism in the members of the profession, and hence instil in legal practitioners a sense of responsibility and accountability.
Understanding Professional Conduct and Ethics for Legal Practitioners in Zambia covers the following areas: the core ethics of a legal practitioner; the obligations of an advocate; the fraternity of lawyers; undertakings; disciplining an advocate; the conduct and ethics of prosecutors; and judicial officers' conduct and ethics.
The book includes the Judicial (Code of Conduct) Act, the Legal Practitioners' Act and the Legal Practitioners' Practice Rules.
