Similar considerations apply to the reporting of judicial misconduct. [4] The duty to report professional misconduct does not apply to a lawyer retained to represent a lawyer whose professional conduct is in question or to a lawyer consulted in a professional capacity by another lawyer on whether the inquiring lawyer has a duty to report a third party lawyer’s professional misconduct.

They stressed that ‘parties and their solicitors take their discovery obligations seriously’ [142] and that ‘legal practitioners generally discharge their obligations ethically and professionally and that acts of misconduct are rare’. [143] This view, the Law Council submitted, is supported by data contained in the reports produced by the independent legal services commissioners in Australian state/territory jurisdictions. [144] 12.96 Both the group of large law firms and the Law Council also argued that, in the words of the submission from the law firms, compliance with discovery obligations involves subjective decisions as to whether documents are relevant on which competent and reasonable lawyers may legitimately form different views, particularly in relation to documents of marginal relevance. [145] 12.97 Mandatory reporting of misconduct was also not necessary, the group of large law firms argued, because: the adversarial process allows for a party’s compliance with its discovery obligations to be challenged and tested; the Court has the power to use cost sanctions against a party and its solicitors if they fail to observe their discovery obligations; a failure of a solicitor or barrister to properly perform his or her duties as an officer of the Court in relation to discovery may amount to professional misconduct that can be addressed by existing disciplinary processes; and it may be difficult for a practitioner to comply with a positive obligation to disclose misconduct.
