In this episode of The Crafty Show Ben White, founder of Crafty Counsel, is joined by Richard Moorhead, Professor of Law at the University of Exeter.

Ben and Richard talk about recent ethical crises in UK businesses and what in-house lawyers can learn from them. 

Richard is an empirical legal scholar who focuses on lawyers’ ethics and regulation, the courts and legal services, and access to justice. He is interdisciplinary in his approach and his academic and policy interests encourage significant levels of public engagement. 

In particular, Richard is one of the UK’s experts on ethics for in-house lawyers. Many listening to this may have encountered Richard’s work on the Post Office scandal that has been a most unfortunate part of public life in the UK in recent years. Richard is part of a research team at Exter examining the Post Office scandal’s implications for corporate governance, lawyers’ ethics, and organisational culture.
