The seven member committee includes Justice Désirée Bernard, former judge of the Caribbean Court of Justice and Chancellor of the Court of Appeal of Guyana as Chairman; Dr. Terence Farrell, David Abdullah, Rajiv Persad, Tracy Robinson, Vanessa Gopaul and Rishi Dass.
 
The committee is expected to examine the constitutional and other arrangements pertaining to the selection and appointment of judges of the High Court and the Court of Appeal and to make recommendations with a view to ensuring due process, transparency and accountability whilst maintaining the dignity of judicial officers and the independence of the judiciary.
 
They are also expected to consult with stakeholders and members of the public and to receive and consider their written and oral submissions; and finally they are to report to the Council of the Law Association within three months or such further period as the Council may allow.
