Solicitor's Regulation Authority
Privilege and absolute immunity extend to proceedings before the Solicitors Regulation Authority. They are not limited to things which are actually said or done in proceedings before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, but extend also to statements or conduct connected with the preparation of the case to be presented in court or before the Tribunal. The immunity extends and applies with equal force to disciplinary investigations and disciplinary proceedings: Baxendale- Walker v Middleton & Ors  EWHC 998 (QB). It should be noted that this case concerned the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, which enjoys the status of a court of law for these purposes.
