The primary function of the Judicial Services department is to facilitate hearings and provide administrative support to Panels appointed to deal with a variety of case types.
These Panels include Regulatory Commissions and related Appeal Boards which deal with disciplinary incidents from the Premier League, EFL, Steps 1-4 in the football pyramid, the Women's Super League, and Women's Championship. Example cases include wrongful dismissal claims after a player has been sent from the field of play or misconduct charges ranging from improper conduct in the technical area to betting on football.
