Handbook of Best Practice for Registrars of Final/Appellate, Regional and International Courts and Tribunals

image of Handbook of Best Practice for Registrars of Final/Appellate, Regional and International Courts and Tribunals
This user-friendly, practical handbook is designed to assist Registrars in the day-to-day performance of their duties, thereby contributing to improving the administration and efficiency of final/appellate, regional and international courts and tribunals.



The handbook is divided into four sections: institutional matters; information and document management; the needs of court and tribunal users; and eradicating inefficiencies and abuses of process. It provides examples of good practice to help Registrars benefit from the challenges faced by other courts and tribunals, throughout the Commonwealth and worldwide.

Eradicating Inefficiencies and Abuses of Process

Without question, it was this part of the Ottawa meeting and its working sessions – concerning the eradication of inefficiencies and abuses of process – which gave rise to the most concern. The value of these deliberations is that the failings have been clearly identified. The measures for reform do not lie with the individuals within a court or tribunal or any particular system within a registry, but rather with the member states of the various regional organisations. Considerable resources are being spent in connection with the resolution of disputes in this area. However, unless these concerns are addressed, the results may at best create a limited benefit for participants and no clear advantage to the community at large.
