95. Ceasing to act
(1) If a situation arises, or is likely to arise, in which a barrister who is holding a brief may be required to give evidence, the barrister is to retire from the matter to which the brief relates if this may be done without undue prejudice to the barrister's client.
(2) If the professional conduct of a barrister who is holding a brief is, or is likely to be, called into question, the barrister is to retire from the matter if the barrister is satisfied that the prejudice to the client is greater if the barrister continues to hold the brief than if he or she retired from the matter.
