Information Tribunal Lay Member Appointments Open

Ever fancied being a wing member of an Information Rights Tribunal? Well, for ten lucky applicants, your dreams can come true. Panopticon’s attention has been drawn to a Judicial Appointments Commission application process which opens in August (and closes in September) for ten new Information Rights lay members. You can find the details here. Appointees will sit in the First-tier Tribunal, and occasionally the Upper Tribunal, to hear FOIA, EIR and DPA appeals. Non-lawyer readers of this blog – and we know you are out there – should consider applying.
