Challenging Professional Boundaries
28 - 29 November, 2013
Flinders University Victoria Square
The Australian and New Zealand Legal Ethics Colloquium (ANZLEC) Series started in 2005 when Duncan Webb hosted the first regional meeting of New Zealand and Australian legal ethicists in Christchurch, New Zealand. Since then meetings have been held in Toowoomba (USQ, ANZLEC 2, 2010) and Dunedin (Otago, ANZLEC 3, 2012 and from this year will alternate with the biennial International Legal Ethics Conference (ILEC) Series hosted under the auspices of the International Association of Legal Ethics (IAOLE). ILEC 6 will be held in London in July 2014: http://www.stanford.edu/group/lawlibrary/cgi-bin/iaole/wordpress/conferences/
We strongly encourage you to consider joining the growing IAOLE community of international legal ethicists, comprising not only legal scholars but also judges, legal practitioners and policymakers: http://www.stanford.edu/group/lawlibrary/cgi-bin/iaole/wordpress/membership/
Colloquium Papers and Abstracts
ANZLEC4 will provide a forum for participants to share their work and to contribute to rigorous discussion and consideration of issues surrounding legal, sociological, psychological and philosophical approaches to lawyers' ethics. It will also provide a timely forum for discussion of the new national conduct code and new regulatory legislation for Australian lawyers. International scholars are welcome, as are legal practitioners and research students interested in the field of legal ethics. If you wish to present a paper please submit your abstract to: firstname.lastname@example.org [maximum of 200 words] at your earliest convenience and before the closing date of Monday 21 October 2013.
Post Colloquium Tour(s)
We shall be organising a wine tasting tour, including lunch, on Saturday 30 November, possibly with an alternative tour for those who may not appreciate wine, followed by an evening BBQ in Panorama, Adelaide. Further details will be sent to those who register.
We look forward to welcoming you to ANZLEC 4 in Adelaide.

Legal governance in New Zealand: Reporting academically from the co-regulatory ramparts
‘Seismic shift' is a motif that sits both literally and metaphorically in any current discussion of legal professional practice in New Zealand. Closing or downgrading the operation of courthouses (initially based on evaluations of those buildings triggered by the Christchurch earthquake of 2010), the discounting of lawyer participation in criminal and family proceedings and fundamental procedural changes colour the litigation landscape. There is a looming disjunct between how many citizen-users see courts and how the government approaches the question of access to justice that a building used to so matter of factly represent. Lawyers are and will continue to be the often pro bono bridge that is relied on to make the system work and they will also be the most viable back end negotiator with government in relation to unacceptable levels of access to justice. In addition, reduction in public service policy analysts has meant that the New Zealand Law Society (NZLS) is increasingly relied on to protect and advance fundamental values in the process of making new legislation. Lawyers contribute to the submission process for free - and often represent the only voice outside the political context that chills an executive initiative that threatens to impinge on such values. So lawyers are being leaned on to make the ‘system' work. Perhaps this has always been so in a small jurisdiction with a unicameral legislature. But it appears to be unremitting for some sectors of the profession - mainly those who provide the interface between the most vulnerable citizen and the state. There are ethical, regulatory and welfare challenges inherent in this context. Mill's ‘sociological imagination' (discussed by Christine Parker in her 2012 article in the Fordham Law Review) will be turned in the direction of the New Zealand legal landscape - connecting the personal troubles of such lawyers to public justice issues. These connections will be made from the perspective of an academic lawyer and her recent year-long stint heading one branch of the NZLS - the co-regulator of the legal profession in New Zealand.
