Product description

Why you should buy Disciplinary and Regulatory Proceedings Tenth edition

Disciplinary and Regulatory Proceedings is the leading work on this important and dynamic area of law. For 20 years it has provided authoritative guidance to lawyers, tribunals, and other experts dealing with professional discipline and regulation.

This new edition includes four new contributors: Alex Dos Santos; Chloe Carpenter; Richard Smith and Tom Cross, all of whom have extensive experience in this field of law and complement the existing team of specialist authors, thereby ensuring that every area is covered in depth. The book addresses all the major regulatory fields of expertise, and provides expert analysis on the full range of issues that may arise in the course of disciplinary proceedings. The text has been substantially updated and is structured into four major parts: General; The Disciplinary Process; Specific Regulatory Regimes; and Data Protection and Freedom of Information.

As with previous editions it looks in detail at the application of the general principles that govern this area of law, together with greater analysis of case law, rules and practice directions of the various disciplinary bodies and guidance issued by the various professional bodies. It also provides in depth treatment of the relevant procedures to be followed, including an extended section on the decision to prosecute.

This edition includes up-to-date chapters on healthcare, financial services and legal services, which have all been substantially rewritten to reflect major legislative changes and recent case law, including the SDT decision in SRA v Beckwith and the Upper Tribunal Decision in Tinney v FCA. The chapter on data protection and freedom of information has been updated to incorporate the GDPR.
