This chapter considers the role and constitutional status of tribunals that determine appeals against initial decisions made by government agencies. It also examines the place of tribunals within the UK’s public law system and the reorganisation of the tribunals into a new, integrated, and unified tribunals system brought about by the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. An overview of the tribunals system, tribunal procedures, and judicial oversight of tribunal decision-making is also provided.
