The purpose of this module is to introduce you to professional ethics for lawyers through case studies taken from the real world, with a particular focus on commercial practice.

Through a series of specially developed case studies you will engage with elements of sophisticated professional practice, the ethical dilemmas that can arise and the commercial, political and interpersonal drivers of those dilemmas.

As a result you will not only gain knowledge about professional ethics but also about commercial awareness and the social psychology of lawyer decision-making.
