Dear The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal,
1. Please detail over the past three years the number of solicitors who have been disciplined for discrimination?
2. Please detail the number of solicitors who were removed from the roll of solicitors because of discrimination?
Dear Mr Boyle,
Thank you for the email below.
Please note that the Tribunal is not subject to the Freedom of Information
With respect to your questions I would refer you to our Annual Reports
which are on the website. The Annual Reports contain information
regarding the numbers of applications we have received and the types of
allegations. Further, judgments that are public are also available on our
website and can be filtered by certain criteria.
Finally, the Solicitors Regulation Authority Ltd ( the Regulator) may be
able to assist you with the type of data you are seeking and I would
suggest that you contact them if you have not already done so.

Following the closure of our offices, the majority of our hearings
continue to be held remotely and I will be mainly working away from the
office for the time being. You can contact me at
[email address]. Alternatively, you can contact the SDT
at [SDT request email].
If your query cannot be dealt with by email and you need to speak to
someone, please call us on 0207 329 4808.
Please continue to send us items electronically as we will not be able to
receive courier deliveries and there will be a delay in post reaching
us. We no longer have a DX service.
Please check our website for any updates and for further information.
