I’ve just heard that there is going to be a disciplinary hearing for a lawyer at the Law Society ~ are these hearings open to the public/media?

Generally speaking, disciplinary proceedings before an adjudication tribunal are open to the public, however there are some exceptions.

Please note that the time and dates of hearings can change frequently or even be cancelled right up to and including the day before the hearing. These changes are posted to our website and it is the responsibility of anyone who has reason to attend a hearing to check out our website and confirm the dates and times of the hearings. Unless otherwise posted, all hearings are held at our Water Street location.

For further information, please see the Discipline > Public Hearing Protocol pages of our website.
