A consultation on elegibility criteria in the Scottish Tribunals
The Tribunals & Administrative Justice Policy Team has launched a consultation on draft regulations regarding eligibility criteria for appointment to the Scottish Tribunals. This consultation is running from 17th July until 9th October.
This consultation seeks views on draft eligibility criteria for appointment as legal and ordinary members of the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland.
It is proposed that the legal criteria will be generic while the criteria for ordinary members will be specific to the housing and tax jurisdictions which will be the first to transfer into the new tribunals’ structure.
