Shrimpton v Bar Standards Board

Barrister – Disciplinary proceedings. The Disciplinary Tribunal of the Bar Standards Board (the tribunal) had been entitled to consider that there had been insufficient evidence for it to proceed to a full hearing, in which the appellant barrister could put before them whatever evidence he wished and re-run whatever legal argument he wished in order to seek to persuade them that he was innocent of the offences of which he had been convicted. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against the decision of the tribunal disbarring him on account of his two criminal convictions.
