Description of this Book

There are approximately 100 new cases each year coming before the higher courts dealing with regulatory and disciplinary issues. Cases involving health care professionals, the legal and accountancy professions and the police, including the Independent Police Complaints Commission, are heard daily in the Administrative Court in London or in Manchester, and cases concerning financial services are regularly heard in the Upper Tribunal. Frequently cases go on appeal to the Court of Appeal and occasionally to the Supreme Court. Additionally, cases involving issues of professional conduct are heard in the Court of Session in Scotland and the High Court in Northern Ireland. Now in its third edition, Kenneth Hamer's Professional Conduct Casebook is a leading authority and continues to be the only book to provide comprehensive coverage of the growing body of case law in this developing area. Containing 85 chapters in an easy-to-use A-Z format, it analyses all key professional conduct and competence cases in one single volume, distilling the general principles from the legislative framework and offering lucid and informed summaries for today's busy practitioner. Key words included in the margin beside each case enables the reader to see at a glance the critical features of the case in question. The book covers every issue arising in the course of professional conduct proceedings, from absence of the practitioner through to the unrepresented practitioner and witnesses. The author expertly identifies all of the relevant source material that needs to be considered when confronted by a specific issue, and provides clear, practical guidance. Each chapter examines the legal framework of all the applicable statutory and non-statutory provisions, details any relevant guideline remarks which set out general principles, and summarizes all relevant case law. The book is an indispensable source of reference for every regulatory and disciplinary lawyer, and all professionals engaged in this work.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I have no doubt that this new edition will be welcomed without reservation by those who practise regulatory and disciplinary law, and will both consolidate and enhance the book's reuptation. In what must be and extraordinarily time-consuming exercise of reading and distilling hundreds of new cases, Hamer has saved enormous amounts of research time for those of us who toil in the regulatory vineyard. In every respect, this is a worthy successor to the first edition. * Greg Treverton-Jones QC, Law Society Gazette * Kenneth's book remains an invaluable aid to practitioners in the field of regulatory and disciplinary work and, as noted in the forward to the new edition by the Rt Hon. Lord Justice Lloyd Jones, Chairman of the Law Commission, 'Kenneth deserves the warm thanks and congratulations of a grateful profession. * Nicole Curtis, Partner, Pennigtons, ARDL Quarterly Bulletin * Hamer's Professional Conduct Casebook is a leading authority and continues to be the only book to provide comprehensive coverage of the growing body of case law in this developing area.Case studies remain at the heart of this casebook which is the only book to analyse all key professional conduct and competence cases in one single, portable volume. There are over 1,000 reported cases, 250 being new to this edition. It is an indispensable source of reference for every regulatory and disciplinary lawyer and anyone engaged in this work. * Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers * Review from previous edition Sometimes, these days, books do not necessarily do what they say on the cover. This book most certainly does and I would say it is an essential for those working in the sphere of regulation and discipline. * David Wilton, TEDR, The Academy of Experts *
