Lawyers who work in multiple jurisdictions can be subject to more than one set of rules of professional conduct. The challenges faced by an increasingly mobile and global legal workforce led the Federation of Law Societies to create a Model Code of Professional Conduct that has since been adopted by a number of provinces (including, with some modifications, Ontario).

To allow lawyers to quickly determine which provisions of the Model Code apply in a particular jurisdiction, the Federation has recently introduced an interactive version that allows user to view the Model Code provisions “side by side” with provincial and territorial equivalents. You can view the interactive code here.
