The Federation of Law Societies is proposing amendments to Model Code Rule 6.3 concerning discrimination and harassment. The draft amendments revise the rule to provide clearer guidance on prohibitions against discrimination, harassment and bullying.

As part of this commitment, we are seeking your feedback on proposed changes to Rule 6.3 of the Model Code, dealing with harassment and discrimination. For more details on the amendments, view the Consultation Memo and Draft Rules and Commentary.

The Federation’s Standing Committee will carefully consider the feedback it receives, making further changes to the proposed amendments as appropriate.
