This paper examines the ethical behaviour of new lawyers from two contrasting points
of view. First, we review the prevalence and type of ethical misconduct by lawyers in
the Australian state of Victoria during their first three years of practice. This
examination is based upon data provided by the professional conduct oversight
body, the Victorian Legal Services Board & Commissioner. An analysis of this data
provides some understanding of how often and what kinds of misconduct occur,
