NEW: Code of Conduct for Legal Practitioners in Seychelles

 

As of 29 July 2013, all legal practitioners in Seychelles are subject to a new Code of Professional Conduct, promulgated by the Chief Justice as the Legal Practitioners (Professional Conduct) Rules under the Legal Practitioners Act.

This is a ground-breaking step towards greater transparency, accountability and effectiveness in the conduct of the local bar. It provides a natural counterpoint to the Seychelles Code of Judicial Conduct, which came into effect in 2010.
