Alex Haines instructed in case before United Nations Appeals Tribunal

Alex Haines, assisted by Stephen Butler, has recently been instructed in an appeal before the United Nations Appeals Tribunal (UNAT).

The UNAT is the second and final instance of appeal within the UN internal system of justice.  The UNAT was established by the General Assembly in 2009 as part of the new UN internal justice system (replacing the old United Nations Administrative Tribunal).

As the second level appellate review tribunal within the UN’s justice system, the UNAT reviews (1) appeals against judgments rendered by the UN Dispute Tribunal (UNDT), (2) appeals against judgments rendered by the Dispute Tribunal of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWADT), as well as (3) appeals of decisions taken by the Standing Committee acting on behalf of the UN Joint Staff Pension Board (UNJSPB) and (4) appeals of decisions taken by organisations, agencies and entities that have accepted UNAT’s jurisdiction, including the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Members of Outer Temple Chambers’ specialist international team are currently instructed in a number of cases involving several international organisations.

The team’s work ranges from advisory work to training, arbitration, litigation and advocacy before international courts and tribunals including the EU’s General Court, International Administrative Tribunals and LCIA arbitrations.
