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.

Institutional Matters

As a starting point, it is clear that a body administering a court or tribunal should have a mission statement and/or strategic plan. It is also clear that a body administering a court or tribunal should be established according to rules set out in a statute or treaty. The statute or treaty should provide for: the jurisdiction and status of the institution; the hierarchy and employment status of its administrative officers and employees; as well as fundamental matters of governance, including the organisation of the body’s financing.
