Disciplinary and Regulatory Proceedings
Disciplinary and Regulatory Proceedings is the leading work on this important and dynamic area of UK law. For 20 years, it has provided authoritative guidance to lawyers, tribunals, and other experts dealing with professional discipline and regulation in the UK. This eighth edition has been written by a new team of specialist authors and covers all the major regulatory fields of expertise. The text has been substantially rewritten and restructured 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 UK case-law, rules, and practice directions of the various disciplinary bodies and guidance issued by the various professional bodies. The book also provides in-depth treatment of the relevant procedures to be followed, including an extended section on the decision to prosecute. This edition includes a new chapter on disclosure and confidentiality, as well as up-to-date chapters on healthcare, financial services, and legal services, which have all been substantially rewritten to reflect major legislative changes.
