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.
