Abstract

The relationship between lawyers and clients has been regulated in Law Number 18 of 2003 concerning Advocates (UU No. 18/2003). It is not explicitly stated, but it has become a stipulation that what is the obligation of an advocate is the client's right and the advocate's right is the client's obligation. One of them is the negligence of a lawyer in fulfilling the assignment agreement he has agreed with the client. The examination strategy that the creator utilizes is regulating legitimate exploration, the essential legitimate materials are utilizing the Common Code, Regulation Number 18 of 2003 concerning Backers (UU No. 18/2003), and the Overarching set of rules for the Promoter Calling. The secondary legal materials use publications concerning law related to the topic being discussed by the author such as supporting books and legal journals, as well as official documents. The approach in this research is using a statute approach. The results obtained from this analysis are ethical and legal responsibility for lawyers can be carried out both civilly and criminally with a record that the lawyer already has malicious intent (mens rea) and his actions are proven to be contrary to laws and regulations while still paying attention to the requirements of the complaint that must continue to be carried out following applicable laws and regulations, namely Law No. 18/2003 and the Advocate Professional Code of Ethics.
