This Article examines if what the European Economic Community adopted as a common Code of Conduct for Lawyers in the European Community could be the basis for world-wide code of conduct for lawyers. The code of conduct creates a framework of principles of professional conduct that is to be applied to all cross-border activities between lawyers in the EEC, including all professional contacts with lawyers of Member States (and other signatories) other than their own, and also to the professional activities of lawyers in a Member State other than their own.
