By Contessa Pizanias|23 August 2019

Principal of SBA Legal and treasurer of NSW Council of Civil Liberties Stephen Blanks joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this week’s episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to discuss the role of ethics in law and its relationship to civil liberties.

Mr Blanks, an alumnus of Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership, discusses ethical considerations that legal professionals need to be aware of, the relationship between ethics and civil liberties and why legal professionals need to ensure they aren’t just doing what their clients want. He also discusses the current political landscape, the environment around parliament and how lawyers in the workplace should view civil liberties.
