Emerging Issues in Legal Practice: Ethics, Representation, and International Dispute Resolution (Side event on the margins of the Sixth Committee, General Assembly, 77th Session)
Side event on the margins of the Sixth Committee, General Assembly, 77th Session. The event will discuss the evolution of the area of legal practice related to the ethical considerations in representation. The discussions will focus on the role played by the practitioners in developing, implementing and enforcing ethical standards, as well as the role of the international community in supporting such processes.
Drawing on examples from both commercial and interstate proceedings, the panelists will aim to identify recommendations and suggestions as to how ethical standards governing the conduct of advocates representing state clients before international courts and tribunals can be improved and further implemented.
