Podcast: How ethical are lawyers in the eyes of Australians?
In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show – brought to you by Governance Institute of Australia – we reflect on the results of the latest Ethics Index and, in particular, how ethical lawyers in Australia are perceived to be.
Lawyers Weekly journalist Jerome Doraisamy is joined by special guests Catherine Maxwell FGIA (executive manager, policy and advocacy at Governance Institute), Dr Deen Sanders OAM (partner, Deloitte) and Rosemary Sainty FGIA (academic, UTS Business School).
Ethics, and ethical conduct, is fundamentally important in ensuring social and cultural cohesion, not just within our immediate personal and professional communities, but for society as a whole. Find out how lawyers compare to those in other industries, and what can the profession do in response to such findings.
