The Law Society keeps statistics on solicitors who have been subject to sanctions by the Law Society and the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal. It does not maintain statistics on the basis of whether the misconduct was a breach of the practice rules or of other regulations.

The number of solicitors subject to a penalty by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal since 2004 is:

2006 (to date) 141
2005 211
2004 236
