Abstract: This presentation is intended to expose participants to various types of regulation of lawyers in different parts of the world. It will comparatively examine the structure and ethical framework of the legal profession in the United States (mainly based on the ?Model Rules of Professional Conduct? issued by the American Bar Association), European Union (covered in the well-accepted cross-border legal practice regulation of lawyers-document titled the ?CCBE?), and in Russia (described in the ?Code of Professional Ethics for the Attorney?), as an example of a post-Soviet country, including the recourse that may be taken against attorneys for ethical misconduct and professional malpractice. Other topics to be covered will include a range of accompanying ethical and legal issues, such as the role of lawyers and judges, beginning and ending of the attorney-client relationship, globalization of the legal profession and the image and expectations of lawyers in parts of the world mentioned above. The presentation will also address various aspects of ethical law practice in selected countries described and analyze the reasons behind established traditions and practices in various legal systems.
