The main ethical system that conforms to my beliefs is the principle of forfeiture which
denies the right to be treated under the principles of respect to the extent that one’s rights are

Importance of adhering to ethical standards in criminal justice
Lawyers are important in the interpretation of the law and the rule of law which is based
on the principles of justice, fairness and equity. Lawyers who fail to adhere to the ethical
principles will make people seek other means of conflict resolution. The fact that lawyers are
professionals give the impression that ethical responsibility and duty are integral part of the
profession by Hugman, (1995). As justice Kirby of the Australian high court once articulated
that a profession most valuable assets is it reputation and confidence that it inspires.in addition
lawyers are court officers and as such have has moral ground to serve the court and administer
justice. Lastly lawyers are privileged class in that they can for reward, take causes of others
and bring them before the court.
