|Section:||9||Heading:||Effective date of amendment||Version Date:||01/02/2003|
(1) Subject to subsection (2), the amendment shall have effect from the date when the solicitor concerned is notified of the Society's intention to amend the practising certificate.
(2) If the Society's decision to amend a practising certificate by adding conditions is appealed against under section 6(9) of the Ordinance, the decision shall be suspended in its operation as from the day on which the appeal is made until such appeal is disposed of under section 6(11) of the Ordinance.
(3) Where there is pending against any judgment or order an appeal by a solicitor which, if successful, would result in section 7 no longer being applicable to him, the Society shall not give a notification under subsection (1) in his case so long as the appeal is pending, unless in the opinion of the Society the proceedings on that appeal have been unduly protracted by him or are unlikely to be successful.
(4) Subsection (3) does not apply to the exercise of the Society's powers under this section by virtue of section 7(2)(c).
