About the 3rd edition of the Tribunal Practice and Procedure guide

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. 

In the three and a half years since the previous edition, the tribunal system has continued to expand. The Property Chamber has joined the First-tier Tribunal, the jurisdictions of the Chambers comprising the First-tier Tribunal have steadily increased as new rights of appeal have been created, and the Upper Tribunal’s judicial review function has been greatly expanded. 

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.

Reviews 

‘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.' Adviser

Edward Jacobs is one of the founding judges of the Upper Tribunal, assigned to the Administrative Appeals Chamber.
