Written by experts in the field, including judges, academics, and leading practitioners, with 26 contributing authors and covering 30 topics, Professional Responsibility in New Zealand allows lawyers to effectively manage risk by ensuring that everyone understands their ethical and legal obligations.

Covering the foundational subjects of client care, working with other lawyers, behaviours in court, and tikanga Māori, this book is a must-have resource for all practitioners and students of law. This second edition has been updated to reflect the amendments to the Conduct and Client Care Rules, which were recommended by the New Zealand Law Society’s independent working group report on bullying and harassment in the legal profession.

Drawn from the online publication of the same name, Professional Responsibility in New Zealand provides expert commentary on the professional obligations of lawyers, mediators, non-lawyer advocates; including annotated rules, topic-based commentary on issues outside of the relevant legislation, and updates on important case law.
