Guide to Professional Conduct of Solicitors
This Guide is a statement of the accepted principles of good conduct in practice for solicitors, illustrated in the context of practical situations, including those which are most frequently the subject of queries to the Law Society from solicitors.
The legal framework for the regulation of the conduct of solicitors in Ireland is the Solicitors Acts 1954 to 2011 and the regulations under those acts. In addition, there are recognised principles of good professional conduct, such as honesty, independence, confidentiality and avoidance of conflict of interest situations, contravention of which may amount to misconduct.
