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.
