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

This new 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 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.
