Medical Student Fitness to Practise Hearings at Universities

Medical Student Disciplinary Hearings

Medical Student Disciplinary Processes at University Level

Medical students can face university level disciplinary hearings that could bring their studies and their desire to become doctors to an end. Our lawyers represent medical students in such disciplinary hearings and investigations.

Some cases are sufficient to justify the attendance of lawyers, even where the university policy says the contrary. The case law is clear on this point.

Case Law

In AB v The University of XYZ (Rev 1) [2020] EWHC 2978 (QB) the High Court held that the principles of natural justice may require universities to permit students to be represented by a lawyer. (November 2020)
