Misleading the Court on Legal Issues

A lawyer must not misstate the law. Lawyers are under a positive duty to make full disclosure of all the binding authorities relevant to a case. This means that all such authorities on point must be brought before the court, whether they support or undermine the position being argued by that party, even if opposing counsel has not cited such authority. See: A LAWYER'S DUTY TO THE COURT by Roebert Bell and Caroline Abela
