Lawyers should offer services based on results with conditional cost agreements (no win, no fee) in Family Law matters?

Many people say that "Lawyers should offer services based on results with conditional cost agreements (no win, no fee) in Family Law matters" however what you may not realise in Family Law matters that is prohibited under the legal profession uniform law and would constitute either unsatisfactory professional conduct or professional misconduct on the part of any principal of the law practice or any legal practitioner associate.

LEGAL PROFESSION UNIFORM LAW (NSW) - SECT 181

(7) A conditional costs agreement may relate to any matter, except a matter that involves--
     proceedings under the Family Law Act 1975 of the Commonwealth; or
     proceedings under legislation specified in the Uniform Rules for the purposes of this section.

(8) A contravention of provisions of this Law or the Uniform Rules relating to conditional costs agreements by a law practice is capable of constituting unsatisfactory professional conduct or professional misconduct on the part of any principal of the law practice or any legal practitioner associate or foreign lawyer associate involved in the contravention.
