With financial support from the Nuffield Foundation, the Law Centre commissioned further research from Brian Thompson and Gráinne McKeever as a follow up to their report, published last year, Redressing Tribunal Users’ Disadvantage – Proposals for Tribunal Reform in Northern Ireland. The original report (available below) had identified research gaps, which are now addressed in these new reports.

Supporting Tribunal Users, Access to pre-hearing information, advice and support in Northern Ireland, by Grainne McKeever, School of Law, University of Ulster, published by Law Centre (NI)
This important report, published in 2010, covers users' views of tribunals and provides an agenda and proposed roadmap for carrying forward tribunal reform in Northern Ireland.
