From Law Society of Singapore to Blawggers

The Law Society of Singapore has just issued its first Council Practice Direction of the year.  The message : adhere to professional conduct rules when blogging about ongoing proceedings.   We reproduce the guidelines here :-

1. To act in the best interest of the client;

2. To uphold the standing of the profession;

3. To maintain confidentiality between solicitor and client;

4. To comply with the rules of professional conduct and publicity;

5. To avoid comments that may prejudice matters sub judice or that may be in contempt of Court;

6. To avoid adverse remarks on the conduct or character of the opposing party.
