Congratulations to Christopher Quinlan KC who will be continuing his 8 years of service with World Rugby in his reappointment as Independent Judicial Panel Chair.

When announcing the reappointment, World Rugby commented:

‘In his final term, Quinlan will lead the charge on a wide-ranging review of the sport’s off-field sanction process with a clear mandate from the federation’s Executive Board and the wider game through the Shape of the Game recommendations, to streamline the process where possible to reflect the modern game.

Quinlan, who is one of the most respected figures in the field with more than 30 years of independent criminal and sports law practice, will combine overseeing this change process with responsibility for the appointment, management and training of World Rugby’s judicial committees and officers for the international game, including men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups.’
