La structure et le régime des conflits d’intérêts au sein des professions juridiques : réflexions convergentes

Conflicts of interest in the legal profession are often discussed in a binary fashion, addressing separately its manifestations in the context of the solicitor-client relationship and in the requirement that judges be impartial. These two spheres, the public requirement of impartiality and the private obligation to avoid conflict, are seen to have little in common. This increasingly does not reflect reality. The author examines the structure and regime of conflicts of interest in order to demonstrate that there is increased convergence between how ethical rules governing lawyers and judges address this important concern.
