Part of our mission at the InterLaw Diversity Forum is to support diverse talent along the career pipeline. Our research has shown that diverse talent faces increased challenges, and that the 'more boxes you tick' (i.e. intersectionality), the greater those challenges become.

 

To aid the career progression of talent (both lawyers and business services) from all strands of diversity and inclusion (including LGBT+, Race & Ethnicity, Disability, Gender) and social mobility, we work with organisations who want to reach the broadest applicant pool possible so that they can source the best talent.

If your organisation is interested in participating, please contact:

Fee-paid judges

There are 150 vacancies for Fee-paid Judge of the First-tier Tribunal, with vacancies across all 7 chambers. Tribunals often sit as panels consisting of a legally qualified chair (the judge) and non-legal members with specific areas of expertise. During the hearing the judge must ensure that the overriding objective (to deal with cases fairly and justly) is observed, which will include all parties having the opportunity to participate in proceedings as fully and fairly as possible. Many cases involve individuals putting their own case forward without legal assistance. The judge should therefore help ensure the system is accessible to all by guiding parties through the procedures appropriately. Except in cases that involve national security or evidence of a very personal nature, substantive final hearings in tribunal cases are held in public.
