    Can anyone give me some pointers please. I have been off uni due to sickness and now have a coursework to finish and just need a point in the right direction.

    I have an ethics question to complete. These are the points I need some help on:

    Would it be unethical for a husband and wife who are divorcing to hire solicitors that are also married?

    Also would it be unethical for a solicitor to date and move in with his client?

    Further if the solicitor who is dating his client, is letting her run up a bill and not pay him, but he is paying her housekeeping.... Would the solicitor be unethical for this.

    I'm not asking for answers just a point in right direction as to the code of conduct

    Read your SRA Code.

    State the principle that is relevant [you are dealing with a client here];
    the outcome;
    the indicative behaviours; and
    apply to the scenario.

    That's all you need to do.

    Any more pointers than that and someone would be doing your homework for you.

    but my problem is that it does not directly apply any scenarios to an intimate relationship with a client or not letting them pay fees.
    the solicitor also punches the husband outside of court.
    im so confused
