The number of regulatory and disciplinary cases coming before the courts is increasing dramatically, reflecting the rise in the number of complaints made against professionals of all kinds. Likewise, an ever-increasing number of disciplinary and fitness-to-practise hearings are reported by the media.

Covering a wide range of professions, from doctors and healthcare professionals to lawyers and sports professionals, from financial service providers and accountants to the police and prison service, the law around this developing subject has become increasingly complex.

Kenneth Hamer's Professional Conduct Casebook is the only book to provide comprehensive coverage of the growing body of case law in this developing area. It analyses all the key professional conduct and competence cases in a single volume and distills the general principles from the legislative framework and relevant case decisions, offering lucid guidance to practitioners much in need of clarity.

The book contains extensive summaries of the cases and the decisions reached in each case by the court. Structured alphabetically for logical, quick reference, the book contains over 60 chapters which cover every issue arising in the hearing of conduct and competence cases.

The expert author identifies all the source material that practitioners need to consider when confronted by a specific issue, and provides clear, accessible 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 caselaw, making the book an indispensable source of reference for every regulatory and disciplinary lawyer.
