Bar Standards Board v Howd; Howd v Bar Standards Board

Counsel – Disciplinary proceedings. The Administrative Court allowed the appellant practising barrister's appeal against the decision of the disciplinary tribunal of the Council of the Inns of Court, finding six charges of professional misconduct proved against him. On the basis of medical evidence, the appellant's behaviour had not reached the threshold for a finding of serious professional misconduct, as it had plainly not been reprehensible, morally culpable or disgraceful, having been caused by factors beyond his control.
