In Lawal v Northern Spirit Ltd, the EAT holds that an appellant's right under article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights to a fair hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal was not breached merely because a recorder (or part-time judge) was to appear as counsel before an EAT panel that included a lay member who had previously sat with that recorder in his or her capacity as part-time judge in the EAT.
