RULES OF CONDUCT PAGE (previously Advocates Handbook)

In the conduct of their practice Advocates must comply with many Rules of conduct. These govern the way in which Advocates’ practices are structured; what is required to become an Advocate; what Advocates can and cannot do whilst practising.

The Rules are contained in various documents, some are Rules that have been made by the Society and others are rules which are contained in legislation passed by Tynwald. They must often be read together.

If you click here you will be taken to the Rules page which contains the Society’s Rules and the relevant legislation.

In addition, it should be noted that many of the Rules which govern Solicitors and Barristers  in England and Wales also apply to Manx Advocates. Links to the bodies regulating these professions and their Rules can be found here;
