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.
