Common Questions

I’m preparing for a tribunal. Where can I find out what to do?

A tribunal is a special body or board of adjudicators that can hear complaints and make decisions in a specific area of the law. In some cases, a tribunal acts in place of the court to solve disputes (conflicts) or determine rights.

  • Administrative Tribunals (BC Admin Law Directory), from Justice Education Society of BC, has information about what administrative tribunals are, how they function, and how to prepare for them. It has a directory of administrative tribunals and agencies, which you can use to find out more about the tribunal you are preparing for.
