Results: International survey on corruption in the legal profession

October 8, 2010 A new international survey on corruption within the legal profession has shown some startling results.

The survey was conducted by the London-based International Bar Association, who said nearly half of the 642 lawyers respondents in 95 countries say corruption affected lawyers in their countries — including all of the respondents surveyed in Pakistan, China and Guatemala.

Results varied according to region, with 16 per cent of lawyers in Australia and New Zealand believing that corruption was an issue, compared to more than 70 percent in African, Latin American and Eastern European countries.
