Currently, I am a member of the Civil Justice Committee, the Membership Board and the Education and Training Committee. I set out below the terms of reference of each of the committees and on individual links to each I set out the current key work areas and I will post the public sections of agendas and important papers.
I am also heading up a working group examining inefficiencies in the Court Service. Please see the separate page on this site for details.
If you have any comments on any part of the work of any of the committees, please get in touch.
