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.
