-

Property and Construction Lecture Series - Christine O’Rourke, Head of Conduct Standards for RICS

This lecture will take place on campus, in The Great Hall, Sutherland Building. Refreshments will be served from 5:45pm in the entrance of Sutherland Building. 

About this event

In 2022 RICS revised their Rules of Conduct for members and firms. In this lecture we’ll discuss how RICS considers that the changes made help support ethical decision making, raise awareness of the public interest remit of members of the institution and highlight the role of professional ethics in some of the challenges faced by professionals and their clients.
