20 October 2008

A recruitment campaign has begun to appoint a new chair of the Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council (AJTC).

The AJTC is an advisory non-departmental public body (and successor to the Council on Tribunals) that keeps the administrative justice system under review, with a view to making it accessible, fair and efficient. The AJTC's main focus is on the needs of users of the administrative justice system and its remit covers England, Scotland and Wales.

The new chair will replace Lord Newton of Braintree OBE DL, who completes nine years as chair in March 2009. The key duties of the role include overseeing the strategic direction of the organisation and the achievement of its objectives, and ensuring that it works with the Secretariat to develop advice and guidance for the administrative justice system.
