Association of Regulatory and Disciplinary Lawyers Seminar

“The test for dishonesty in disciplinary proceedings”

10th March 2016 in London

Speaker: Paul Ozin QC

Chair: The Hon Mr Justice Mostyn

In the second seminar in the 2016 ARDL seminar series, Paul Ozin QC will assess and discuss the key issues in the test to be applied in disciplinary proceedings when assessing dishonesty. Paul will review this fast-moving area of the law and examine a number of the questions thrown up by recent case law, including:

  1. whether the Ghosh test requires modification in important respects in its application to disciplinary cases (Uddin; PSA v HCPC, David);
  2. whether a Ghosh/ Twinsectra test should be routinely applied in disciplinary cases (Uddin);
  3. whether the Twinsectra test is different to the Ghosh test; and, if so, whether it should apply at all to disciplinary cases (PSA v HPCA, David; Kirschner v GDC);
  4. what is the appropriate comparator for determining dishonesty in disciplinary cases (Hussain v GMC). 

Paul Ozin QC is one of the leading professional discipline silks with a practice which covers a range of areas from financial regulation and police misconduct to healthcare. He has taken a particular interest in the test for dishonesty in disciplinary proceedings.

The seminar will be chaired by the Hon Mr Justice Mostyn, who recently reviewed the authorities in this area in reaching his decision in Kirschner v General Dental Council [2015] EWHC 1377 (Admin).

There will be time for questions and discussion. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the seminar. Demand is expected to be high for this event so please register your interest as soon as possible.
