Tribunals are a flexible method of adjudication that hear disputes between citizens and by citizens against government. They come in diverse forms, and their adjudications far outnumber those of courts.
For most people, tribunals are the face of justice. Increasing attention is being paid to tribunal procedures, what decisions they can make, and who are appointed as tribunal members.
This book provides a contemporary snapshot of tribunals and tribunal jurisprudence in the common law world, with contributions and comparative studies from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Contributions are drawn from a distinguished cast of international tribunal experts, judges and practitioners.
