ARDL is continuing with its series of seminars looking at the subject of dishonesty in disciplinary proceedings by focusing in this seminar on the turbulent and rapidly developing case law on the linked topic of ‘integrity allegations in disciplinary proceedings’. The speakers will each talk from their own perspective on how integrity is being dealt with in disciplinary proceedings and the way in which it may be associated with allegations of dishonesty.

He was Head of Chambers at Fountain Court from 2008-2013.
