Tribunal Practice and Procedure is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the integrated tribunal system created by the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. It provides a structured approach to the practice and procedure of tribunals, setting the rules of procedure in context and providing a framework for understanding and analysing the practices that apply to them.
'I am delighted to be able to extend a warm welcome to the third
edition of this invaluable guide ... A legal system which is having
to cope with large numbers of litigants in person has much to learn
from the practice and procedure adopted by tribunals, as described
in this work.' Lord Justice Sullivan, Senior President of
Tribunals, from his foreword
'This book is a remarkable achievement and is thoroughly
recommended for those who sit on, appear before, or otherwise have
to consider the work of tribunals.' Senior Immigration Judge in
the Upper Tribunal
'This is highly recommended reading for anyone preparing cases for
or representing at any tribunal under the new integrated system.'
The tribunal system has, for now, attained a steady state though
the matters over which it has jurisdiction continue to expand,
especially in the General Regulatory Chamber of the First-tier
Tribunal and the Administrative Appeals Chamber of the Upper
Tribunal. The judicial review work of the Immigration and Asylum
Chamber of the Upper Tribunal has now established its position in
place of the Administrative Courtfor that jurisdiction.
As well as dealing with the rules of procedure, this book
contains practical advice for tribunal members and those who appear
before them. For parties and their representatives, it deals with
obtaining and assessing evidence, writing decisions, applying for
adjournments, techniques of questioning and tribunal advocacy.
This is essential reading for tribunal judges and panel members,
representatives and anyone who appears before the tribunal or is
interested in how they work.
