Where the respondent1 requires a hearing2 or the professional conduct committee determines3 that an allegation4 should be the subject of a hearing5, before the opening of the hearing the registrar6 must nominate a legal assessor7 to provide advice to the committee in considering the allegation8. If the respondent does not appear, the committee must call upon the solicitor9 to produce evidence10 that notice has been given to the respondent11; and if the committee is satisfied that it was so given, it may determine that proceedings on the allegation be heard and determined in the absence of the respondent12.
