Offence details:

Gerard Boyd practised as a barrister from 1 January 2009 until 12 October 2009 without having a Practising Certificate issued by the Bar Council, contrary to paragraph

202(c) of the Code of Conduct and the Practising Certificate Regulations (Annex D to the Code of Conduct).

Gerard Boyd failed to respond promptly to requests from the Bar Standards Board for comments or information on a complaint, in that he failed to respond to letters sent to him by the Bar Standards Board dated 23 June 2009 and 14 July 2009, such failure being so serious as to amount to professional misconduct by virtue of its combination with another failure to comply with the Code (being the failure which is the subject of charge 1 of this Charge Sheet).
