Salsbury v Law Society [2008] EWCA Civ 1285; [2008] WLR (D) 365

The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal must now take into account the rights of the solicitor under arts 6 and 8 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. It was an overstatement to say that a ‘very strong case’ was required before the High Court would interfere with a sentence imposed by the tribunal but, absent any error of law, the High Court must pay considerable respect to the sentencing decisions of the tribunal.”
