Adjudicators, or members of the Tribunal, make up the panels that hear and decide Tribunal cases. Law Society Tribunal adjudicators may be benchers (members of Convocation, the Law Society’s board of directors), or appointees (appointed by Convocation). They are lawyers, paralegals, or lay people. Most appointments are for a two-year term.
Each panel is chosen by the Tribunal Chair, with an eye to representation, areas of expertise, and fairness. Panels can comprise one adjudicator, three adjudicators, or five adjudicators (for appeal hearings). When there are multiple adjudicators on a panel, one of the adjudicators is assigned to lead the panel as chair.
Below is a complete list of Tribunal adjudicators, along with their biographies.
