The Guidance on Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct for In-House Counsel prepared by the ICW, was officially launched by Alison Lee and Nina Barakzai at the ICW 2016 Summit held in Paris over the period 24 and 25 October 2016.
The aim of the Guide is to provide general guidance to the In House Community around the globe on the ethical and professional standards expected from the In-House Community.
It is recognised that jurisdictional and geographical differences will exist in respect of certain applications of these ethical and professional standards. This Guidance therefore seeks to establish and set out a recommended standard of ethical behaviour and professional conduct which should be followed by all In-house Counsel, no matter the jurisdiction in which they operate. It is hoped this Guidance may assist all who make up and comprise the In–house Counsel Community in their daily working activities.
