This is the first thorough, annotated commentary on Singapore's ethical rules ever written. This commentary will be particularly useful to Singapore and overseas practitioners, judges, Disciplinary Tribunal members, and students because of its sharp approach to the elements of each regulation of the new Legal Profession (Professional Conduct) Rules 2015 ("PCR"). Members of the public will have a thorough understanding of lawyers' responsibility to their clients after reading this book.

The Legal Profession (Foreign Representation in Singapore International Commercial Court) Rules 2014 are also examined. The link between principles and rules (a key component of the PCR) is addressed in depth, as well as the breadth of their application. Every ethical guideline is explained in detail, as well as all relevant case law and disciplinary decisions pertaining to ethical accountability.

Legal Profession (Professional Conduct) Rules covers relevant laws, practise directions, rulings, guidance notes, and circulars that affect a lawyer's practise, as well as decisions from other jurisdictions. This book will prove to be an invaluable and indispensable tool in comprehending the unusual dynamics of professional conduct in current legal practise, as the PCR breaks new ground structurally, in content, and in applicability.
