Tribunal lay person

Hi All,
Does anybody know where or how to apply to be a lay person on a MHA Tribunal, please?

Join the mailing list at the Judicial Appointments Commission. They have just recently advertised for Specialist Members to the MH Tribunal, and recruited previously about a year ago.


The Judicial Appointments Commission occasionally advertises for Non-legal vacancies which includes Lay members for FTT (mental health) - but they don;t seem to come up very often.

Iā€™m not sure if there are other routes.

The Judicial Appointments Commission website is the place to look, but the most recent deadline for applications was on 28/06/2022.
