Council Approves Model Code of Professional Conduct

Posted on January 19, 2010

The Council of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada has approved a Model Code of Professional Conduct setting out expected standards of ethical conduct by members of the legal profession. The Model Code is now being considered by our member law societies. The rules dealing with conflicts of interest and a future harm exception to the rules on confidentiality will follow at a later date.
