Resource: Model Code of Conduct (MCoC)


In 2017, LTPI published for public comment the first edition of the LTPI Model Code of Conduct (MCoC).  The MCoC project was developed as a core component of our mission to provide standards and guidelines to the community.  After obtaining feedback from constituents across the industry, we developed a true model code that provides a framework for ethical decision-making by professionals and organizations that provide legal technology products and services.  The MCoC is designed in a manner where it can be directly adopted, or can be adapted as deemed appropriate in accordance with the conditions set forth below.  It is intended to meet the following objectives:

  • Accelerating the level of maturity and consequently building client confidence in work performed by legal technology professionals.
  • Defining constraints for assigning responsibilities and limitations in undertaking legal technology work.
  • A process for communicating processes and results that may be different from what was expected.
A second deliverable, providing ethical guidance to consumer organizations, was started, but not completed.
