Adams — who first said she didn't know the name, then corrected herself and apologized — refused, saying that her client did not want her name disclosed and that she was ethically obliged to protect that attorney-client communication. She may also consider resigning from the board or taking her name out of consideration for the money manager position. A lawyer shall not seek to avoid appointment by a tribunal to represent a person, except forgood cause, such as: representation resulting in a violation of the Rules or law; or representation likely to result in unreasonable financial burden on the lawyer; or the client or the cause is so repugnant to the lawyer as to likely impair the relationship or the lawyer’s ability to represent the client. i.

We strive to provide legal information at the time and in the format requested. This may be particularly relevant to the practice of trolley load litigation. [106] 12.73 Similarly, with respect to delay, the Model Rules provide that a lawyer will not have breached their obligation to the client where they exercise forensic judgment so as to present the client’s case as quickly and simply as is consistent with its robust advancement. [107] This rule has been criticised for not imposing a positive obligation on a lawyer to conduct a matter quickly and simply, but rather merely allows a lawyer to do so, operating in a ‘passive, defensive role (primarily for the benefit of the advocate) rather than in active support of the court’s function’. [108] The Legal Profession Conduct Rules 2010 (WA), however, provides that a practitioner must, among other things, ‘confine the hearing of a matter to issues which the practitioner believes to be the real issues’ and ‘present the client’s case as quickly and simply as is consistent with its robust advancement’. [109] 12.74 In the Consultation Paper, the ALRC asked whether existing general legal ethical obligations in professional rules were sufficiently specific and clear so that lawyers were aware of their obligations concerning discovery and electronic discovery. [110] The ALRC also asked whether professional conduct rules should be amended to include specific legal ethical obligations concerning discovery, [111] or whether, as the ALRC proposed, these obligations should be expressed in commentary to the professional conduct rules. [112] Such commentary might also address electronic discovery, the ALRC proposed. [113] 12.75 A number of submissions argued that it was not necessary to introduce additional professional conduct rules specifically relating to discovery, [114] particularly, as one submission stressed, in ‘the absence of any compelling evidence of wide-spread abuse’. [115] The Law Council was satisfied that the existing statement of obligations arising from the framework of legal ethical obligations created by legislation, Court Rules, Practice Directions and the rules of professional conduct is sufficiently clear and specific to ensure that lawyers are aware of their obligations relating to discovery. [116] 12.76 Some submissions agreed that the rules are expressed in general or abstract terms, which may make them more difficult to apply. [117] Accordingly, there was support of ‘the development of a practically focused commentary on those rules and obligations, providing concrete examples of ethical and legal issues concerning discovery’ and electronic discovery. [118] The commentary would be ‘an excellent point of reference for practitioners and would raise much needed awareness’. [119] 12.77 The Law Council also agreed that ‘the principle-rule-commentary approach will enhance understanding and assist solicitors to interpret and comply with their ethical obligations’ and said it was already developing commentary to the Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules: The 2010 Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules will offer an enhanced and modern restatement of those obligations, structured under a principle-commentary approach.

According to this “Górniak hypothesis”, regional ethical theories like Europe’s Benthamite and Kantian systems, as well as the diverse ethical systems embedded in other cultures of the world, all derive from “local” histories and customs and are unlikely to be applicable world-wide.
