This workshop explores some examples of practical ethical dilemmas in legal practice.

Attendees will probe real ethical dilemmas faced by Commercial lawyers through the use of case studies considering: ‘What should I do’ and ‘What would I do’? if faced with the issues presented. The session will examine some of the barriers as to why ‘what is right’ isn’t always so easy to do!
