This paper reports the performance prediction and analysis of a back-pack thermoelectric cooling helmet through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This cooling system (helmet) works on the Principle of thermoelectric cooling based on Peltier effect. The system is divided into two parts namely cold side and hot side of thermoelectric system. The cold side components are blower, divergent duct, cold plate and convergent duct whereas the hot side components are Aluminium block, heat pipe, fins and fan. The array of thermoelectric modules are sandwiched between these Cold Side and hot side components.

In discourses on ethical standards, common terms or phrases that come to fore include norms, morals, values, acceptable conducts, perceptions of right against wrong, duties, obligations, and so on. For legal ethics however, it is of a higher benchmark. This is due to the standing accorded the legal profession. The custodians of the profession, the bar and bench, have an obligation to uphold legal ethics, much of which appears to be on a constant decline, contrary to what the legal profession should represent. Legal codes on ethics for lawyers prescribe standards by which lawyers are expected to conform, when faced with ethical challenges arising at the instance of professional dealings with clients, colleagues and the courts. This paper explores the prospects of courts in enforcing ethical standards amongst lawyers, via its rules of practice and procedure. It does this by examining the provisions of the recently reviewed Lagos State High Court Civil Procedure Rules (LSHCCPR) 2019 and advances the position that the new rules of court places it in good stead for enforcing ethical compliance amongst lawyers appearing before it. The paper also suggests that the promotion of a harmonious bar and bench is key to this end.
