Obligations of Legal Practitioner Directors

The legal practitioner directors (LPD) of an Incorporated Legal Practice (ILP) are subject to the same professional obligations as other practitioners set out in the Legal Profession Act 2007, the Legal Profession Regulation 2007, the Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules and the common law. However, legal practitioner directors have additional obligations and responsibilities.

A failure to comply with any of these obligations is conduct capable of amounting to unsatisfactory professional conduct or professional misconduct.
