BULLETIN: Professional regulatory law update - Review of July 2015
Welcome to Blake Morgan's latest edition of the professional regulatory law update, our update of the important case law and news in the field of Professional Regulation. This month's edition looks at legal developments in July 2015.
This month has seen a couple of decisions relating to charging in regulatory proceedings. In Kiani v Solicitors Regulation Authority the High Court determined that for dishonesty to be found by a Tribunal it must be directed to do so by adequate pleading. The Court of Appeal in Schodlock v General Medical Council looked at the cumulative impact of allegations of misconduct on a finding of serious misconduct. They found that a number of non-serious misconduct allegations could not ordinarily accumulate to a finding of serious misconduct, but noted that this should not be ruled out when dealing with very unusual cases with unusual facts.
