Independent Comparative Case Review
Updated 3 June 2014
In mid-2012, the SRA commissioned Professor Gus John to undertake a comparative review of how the SRA has dealt with disciplinary cases. Professor John looked at 160 files:
- 80 files prepared by the SRA for prosecution at the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) in cases where the SDT findings or judgement has been published;
- 80 files which were dealt with by internal adjudication.
Half the files relate to BME individuals and half to white individuals.
