This chapter explores the nature of the relationship between a lawyer and a client. It discusses professional codes and the three principles of standard conception: partisanship, neutrality, and non-accountability. It goes on to discuss the advertising of legal services, the ‘cab-rank rule’, solicitors and client choice, and ending a relationship with a client. It considers how lawyers should balance their duties to their clients and to others. The chapter also discusses the nature of the contract between solicitors and their clients.
