Ethical development during supervised legal practice

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper discusses the potential for, and challenges associated with, the ethical development of junior lawyers in their early years of practice. Supervised Legal Practice is a statutory requirement in all Australian states and territories where newly admitted lawyers must work as an employee under supervision for a prescribed period. The duration of this prescribed period depends on the nature of pre-admission practical legal training and is two years (for those who completed a PLT course) or 18 months (for those who completed a traineeship or articles of clerkship).
