About

The Prosecuting and Defending Professional Discipline Cases course offered by York University will make sure you are well-briefed and current on what’s essential.

Overview

What you will study

In the professional discipline process, having a thorough and current understanding of substantive law, procedure, and strategic considerations is a must. Whether you are defending a professional in disciplinary proceedings or represent a regulator, this Prosecuting and Defending Professional Discipline Cases course offered by York University gives you the tools you need.

Professional discipline hearings are serious matters. For the professional, years of education, experience, reputation, and livelihood are all on the line. For the licensing body and its counsel, there’s pressure to vigorously protect the public interest and to respond to allegations of misconduct, incompetence, or incapacity in a fair, effective, and timely manner. You need to have an in-depth and up-to-date grasp of the key areas.
