JUDICIAL REVIEW
Applicant had to exhaust remedies before Law Society before seeking review by court

Hearing Panel made discipline decision and penalty. Applicant appealed decision of Hearing Panel to Appeal Panel. Applicant would have right to appeal final decision of Appeal Panel. Application for judicial review was quashed as premature. Applicant had to exhaust remedies before Law Society before seeking review by court. There were no exceptional circumstances. Material did not show proceeding before Appeal Panel would be fatally flawed. Allowing application to proceed would fragment proceeding before Law Society.
