Various disciplinary and regulatory bodies have different rules, powers and procedures, even while sharing a basic legal framework. This book allows a legal practitioner who is appearing before such a body to prepare their case by setting out what powers the body has, what evidence it can hear, the form the procedure will take, whether they can call witnesses, and what sanctions it can impose.
