A judicial body somewhat like a court, but specializing in a particular area of law. In the UK, the term is used in two, slightly different ways: in the general sense described above, and for the specific appeals tribunals administered by the Court Service (see: Court service). These latter are as follows:
- Social Security Commissioners and Child Support Commissioners
- Immigration Appelate Authority
- VAT and Duties Tribunal
- Special Commissioners and Markets Tribunal
- Lands Tribunal
- Employment Appeals Tribunal
Note that the Employment Appeals Tribunal does not hear employment disputes, but only appeals from the rulings of employment tribunals themselves.
