Disciplinary Procedures in the Statutory Professions
Simon Mills, JP McDowell, Aideen Ryan and Eimear Burke
"It is one of the most useful Irish textbooks published in recent years and will, undoubtedly, become the 'Irish Harris': that is, the standard text on the subject for many years to come."  Law Society Gazette, 2012
Now even more professions are subject to statutory professional regulation – ensure you are able to offer them the latest advice
This text is the first book to consider the specific question of the regulation of statutory professions in Ireland. It draws together applicable principles of law (such as questions of practice and fair procedure) and considers in details the relevant sections of the applicable legislation. It is written by experienced practitioners in the field of professional regulatory law and deals with both the principles and practice of statutory professional conduct proceedings.
The book also considers those professions that have recently, or are about to, come under statutory regulation, including: architects, surveyors, teachers, pharmacists, health and social care professionals and accountants.
