Revise SQE Ethics and Professional Conduct provides an overview of the pervasive knowledge, skills and behaviours expected of a solicitor in practice, and will guide readers through the key rules and responsibilities by use of practice examples and experience-based scenarios. Candidates for SQE1 must be able to demonstrate their ability to act honestly and with integrity and the book sets out what this means and models behaviours. Ethics and professional conduct is assessed pervasively across SQE1, and the book begins with an overview of the SRA Principles and the Code of Conduct before dealing with the ethics and professional conduct issues as they arise in the different practice areas assessed by SQE1.
