My Legal Skills book by Stefan Fafinski and Emily Finch, says it's possible to take decisions based on tribunals for: immigration, social security, child support, pension, tax, and land to:

  • High Court: Administrative Court

  • Court of Appeal: Civil Division

I was wondering does this include mental health tribunals, possibly under the social security banner?


The first venue for an appeal from the Mental Health Tribunal is the Upper Tribunal in the Administrative Court.

  • do you know if this judge at the upper tribunal is educated in law like a crown court judge or is he like a magerstrates judge. Mar 24 at 12:14

    @abdellahabib They're all fully qualified, experienced and accomplished judges - a few are also QC.
