Veterinary Profession in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Dr John Alan Walker v The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons
    • Privy Council
    • 21 Nov 2007

  • R (Zoolife International Ltd) v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 17 Dic 2007

    In my view, these statements show clearly that academic issues cannot and should not be determined by courts unless there are exceptional circumstances such as where two conditions are satisfied in the type of application now before the court.

  • Kirk v Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons
    • Privy Council
    • 19 Ene 2004

    Thus both the College and the practitioner may adduce evidence about the underlying facts upon which the conviction is based, provided that the facts which such evidence is relevant to prove are not inconsistent with the finding that the respondent was guilty of the offence. What the practitioner cannot do is to relitigate the conviction before the Committee.

  • Prestcold (Central) Ltd v Minister of Labour
    • Court of Appeal
    • 24 Oct 1968

    Some expressions in common use in documents dealing with legalrights or obligations acquire in a legal context a special meaning different from, or more precise than, their meaning in common speech — they become "terms of art". Again, the habit of a legal draft scan is to eschew synonyms. He uses the same words throughout the document to express the same thing or concept, and consequently if he uses different words the presumption is that A he means a different thing or concept.

  • Neurim Pharmaceuticals (1991) Ltd v The Comptroller-General of Patents
    • Court of Appeal
    • 08 Mar 2011

    We consider that Neurim's arguments are not only tenable: in our view they are right. Many kinds of valuable pharmaceutical research will not get the encouragement or reward they deserve if they are not. Pharmaceutical research is not confined to looking for new active compounds. New formulations of old active substances are often sought. Most are unpatentable but from time to time a real invention is made and patented.
