Abstract:In R (on the application of Coke-Wallis) v Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales  UKSC 1,  2 WLR 103, the Supreme Court held that the principle of cause of action estoppel applied to disciplinary proceedings. This note reviews the reasoning of the court and argues that while the case concerns the doctrine of cause of action estoppel, one should not lose sight of its potential significance with respect to the issue estoppel doctrine.
