After looking into Upper tier Tribunals i found a rather interesting link that would be of benefit for anybody whom wishes to educate themselves about errors of law and the legal requirements by DWP and 1st tier tribunal panels , Points descriptors in legal terms and upper tier tribunals in general.

I am sure these would of been pointed out by other people but i would also suggest that these be pinned where relevant.

They are available in dated versions of all upper case tribunals.

March 2018 - March 2019

they are not limited to PIP either and include ESA , UNIVERSAL CREDIT and many more genres 

I am surprised to see that when it comes to DWP vs lower tribunal that they are very few attempts from DWP over the past 3 years , Statistically (i personally doing the math) would average DWP's attempts to be around 4% of the available sittings and few win.

I am sure these link's will be of use to alot of people as they have certainly enlightened myself a great deal as to Errors of Law , descriptor criteria and legal requirements for descriptors.

Im sure this would be of great use for anybody making either PIP applications and or appeals

Good luck.
