Inquisitorial interventions – Bano

Summer 2011

An overview of the historical origins of the inquisitorial character of tribunals. Reviews the reasons for the 2001 Leggatt review’s conclusions that “the tribunal approach must be an enabling one”, without going so far on any side that the tribunal’s impartiality may appear to be endangered.

Spring 2012

Further consideration of the nature and extent of the inquisitorial role of tribunals and how to achieve the delicate balance between too much and too little intervention.
