In this section, you can find out more about how our Investigations and Enforcement Team make enforcement decisions once reported concerns about barristers' conduct have been passed to them by the Contact and Assessment Team.

We have written this information so that it can be read by everyone who is interested in our disciplinary process, whether you are a member of the public, or a barrister or other regulated person who is facing potential disciplinary action.

For more information on the process we use, see our webpage on how we make enforcement decisions.

On our Independent Decision-making Body page, you can learn how our Independent Decision-making Body (IDB) works in relation to professional misconduct decisions and see who is on it.

If you are a barrister facing a tribunal, a witness appearing at one, or somebody who reported a concern, you should read our section on the disciplinary tribunals.

You can find out about decisions made in past disciplinary cases and about past appeals and judicial review judgements.

We also explain how the determination by consent process works and how we decide whether cases are appropriate. 

And finally, we have gathered together all our policies and guidance relating to our enforcement work on our regulatory decision-making policies page for complete transparency and so that everyone can read them.
