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.

 

There are  50 vacancies for Fee-paid Judge of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales). Employment judges in England and Wales preside over Employment Tribunals, the jurisdiction of which involves a wide range of workplace disputes involving claims against employers, individuals, trade unions, professional and regulatory bodies. There are currently more than 90 different causes of action that can be brought to the Employment Tribunals.
