Its practical approach will help anyone who wishes to avoid the common pitfalls faced by unfamiliar users of the Tribunal.It is the only comprehensive book available on SDT proceedings and it contains all the leading cases on Tribunal proceedings, many of which are not available on the internet, in one handy volume.
