Senior Judge highlights FRU’s value

Lord Justice Ryder, the Senior President of Tribunals, has highlighted FRU’s longstanding contribution to supporting justice.

In a recent speech about assisting access to justice, Sir Ernest Ryder pointed to the efforts of the legal profession to demonstrate its civic engagement. He identified FRU as an exemplar of this, and urged the legal profession, universities and legal regulators to collaborate to show leadership in civic engagement with the justice system.
David Abbott, FRU Chief Executive said “Lord Justice Ryder has statutory responsibility to ensure that the Tribunals are accessible. FRU represents clients in 2 of the largest tribunals; the Social Entitlement chamber and the Employment Tribunal. FRU welcomes LJ Ryder’s endorsement of our work and we support greater collaboration between a wide-range of bodies to extend access to justice.”
