Preparing Ethical Lawyers: A Prescription and a Practical Proposal

Duncan, N. J. (2010). Preparing Ethical Lawyers: A Prescription and a Practical Proposal. Legal Ethics, 13(1), pp. 79-92. doi: 10.5235/146072810791655224


This report proposes a method of making progress in developing the ethics project in legal education. It presents the findings of research into how ethics is currently taught in a number of different jurisdictions and then considers ways in which an effective community of practice might be developed. This involves establishing effective methods of dissemination and collaboration amongst all those interested in developing ethical legal professionals. The report explores ways of using Web 2.0 technologies to achieve these goals. Finally, it presents a new website designed to enable educators, practitioners, regulators and judges to contribute to a developing resource bank and to engage in collaboration and discussion in improving our efforts at developing ethical lawyers.
