    schema:reviewBody ""Lawyers in Australia is a wide-ranging and detailed examination of the legal profession and its ethical framework. It contextualises the role, responsibilities and ethics of lawyers in contemporary Australian society and discusses recent trends and issues. It has proved to be a popular text for the teaching of legal ethics courses since the first edition in 2007. This fourth edition incorporates the latest developments in both law and contextual issues. It provides detailed coverage of the Legal Profession Uniform Law and associated Rules as well as the legislative regimes of non-participating States and Territories that regulate entry to the profession and the conduct of those within it. This edition also updates statistical information relating to lawyers and the make-up of the legal profession in Australia, referencing recent studies and commentary in relation to lawyers and the legal profession. The book also looks at entry to the legal profession and brings the reader up-to-date with recent changes in the delivery and regulation of legal education in Australia. Revised discussion and research questions relating to each chapter continue to make it a useful teaching resource. Its detailed examination of the legal profession, its make-up and its ethical framework, access to justice and consideration of future issues confronting the legal profession, all make it of interest and relevance to academic, student and practitioner alike. Key features of the new edition includes new structure with content organised in a new order covering the legal profession in Australia, the ethical context, the professional context and the sociological context ; updated and expanded use of case law including cases decided in accordance with the Legal Profession Uniform Law ; updated legislative provisions for States and Territories across Australia, including the Legal Profession Uniform Law ; up-to-date commentary on the development of a national legal profession ; extended and updated epilogue, focusing upon the future of the profession."" ;
