Freedom Law – Ethics Quote

“All solicitors as officers of court have an absolute overriding duty first and foremost to the court to serve public interest by ensuring that there is proper and efficient administration of justice. They should never mislead the court either actively or passively. Nor should they consciously furnish to the court erroneous or incomplete information or for that matter incorrect advice that may subvert the true facts. This is a sacred duty which every court is entitled to expect every solicitor appearing before it to unfailingly discharge.” VK Rajah J in Public Trustee v By Products Traders Pty Ltd [2005] 3 SLR 449 at [32].
