The UK tribunal system


The UK tribunal system processes a large number of cases each year. There are a great many different types of specialist tribunals – most people will come into contact with employment tribunals. There are also many tribunals to deal with appeals of administrative decisions made by government bodies. However, the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 created a tiered tribunal system which aims to combine all specialist tribunals into the one system.

Tribunals operate in a similar way to courts but they are much more informal and there are different rules and procedures. In this section we set out some helpful information about tribunals and their processes.

Just as being represented at court can improve your chances of winning your case, you may wish to be represented at a tribunal. At the least, it is always advisable to get legal advice before making a claim at a tribunal. Contact Law has over 5,000 solicitors throughout the UK that we can put you in touch with directly.
