Is law losing its humanity?

By Tasha Levy|07 February 2020

Legal professionals face the constant ethical dilemma of trying to reconcile their compliance with the law with that of the conscious of society, the clients and businesses they represent, and their own moral take on justice.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Steve Mark AM, former NSW legal services commissioner and former president of the Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW, and Professor Deen Sanders OAM, partner at Deloitte.

Mr Sanders and Mr Mark tackle the contentious topic of ethics in both the rule of law and the legal profession, exploring a number of cases that exemplify a loss of humanity, what steps lawyers, law schools and firms can take to improve ethical practice, and why they remain optimistic about the future of the humanistic aspect of the legal realm.
