"The appropriate thing when faced with a racist client is not to commit a breach on the client's behalf, but to withdraw."

So racist clients aren't entitled to representation (and aren't entitled to representation by a lawyer of their choice)? How very progressive.

What "breach" is the solicitor committing on the client's behalf? A client who chooses his/her lawyer/doctor/grocer on the basis of race may be unenlightened, but is not committing any offence or "breach".
