A developing feature of the regulatory landscape is the use of agreed outcomes and conciliation as an alternative to disciplinary hearings.   This seminar aims to explore the different models that have emerged and assess their effectiveness.  Do they work in all cases? What are the pitfalls and what lessons have so far been learned?

The seminar brings together three people who have extensive experience in this area who can share insights from across regulation in health, accountancy and law.

Rosemary acts for a wide range of organisations with regulatory responsibilities, including healthcare, legal, financial and built environment professions. She acts as a legal advisor/assessor to regulatory tribunals, designs and presents legal and regulatory training, and advises regulatory bodies on strategy and governance issues.  Rosemary was a founder member of ARDL in 2002. She now practises from her own firm, RJ Rollason Law.
