Policy and Consultation
User Group Committee
At the initiation of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, a Tribunal User Group Committee ("UGC") has been established, chaired by Edward Nally, President of the Tribunal. The UGC held its first meeting in April 2013, and met every four months in its first year of operation. The UGC's terms of reference are to provide a forum for improving efficiency and consistency in Tribunal and cross-party case management and to assist in building understanding between stakeholders, by provision of a forum for voicing opinion and wider concerns of stakeholders, including Tribunal users.
A summary of the key decisions of the UGC follows below:
The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal is committed to an evidence-based approach to policy-making and needs to take into account the views of anyone who has an interest in the regulation of solicitors in England and Wales. It does this through an open consultation process.
