Sanctions for dishonesty: Law Society v Wilson  EWHC 1022 (Admin)
‘In my judgment, this being a case involving criminal offences of dishonesty, it is one where mitigation personal to the solicitor can carry limited weight. The important factor is the maintenance of public confidence in the honesty and integrity of members of the solicitors' profession in the eyes of the public. The more that is likely to be affected, the less weight personal factors can carry, and vice versa.’ Per Jack J.
(Note: Since the advent of the Human Rights Act the Court in exercising its appellate jurisdiction now enjoys a greater flexibility than was suggested by Sir Thomas Bingham, in Bolton v Law Society  1 WLR 512.)
