Anthony Rich



Anthony is the Secretary of the Legal Experts Working Group in the Mountaineering Commission of the UIAA. 

That Group's main role is to monitor international legal trends & issues affecting mountaineering and climbing and report back to member associations. He is particularly keen to learn of any climbing or mountain related legal cases in the UK and their outcome.

Although he has in the past served for many years as one of the BMC's Hon Legal Adviser (and as the Hon Legal Adviser to Mountain Rescue England & Wales, The British Cave Rescue Council & a number of other bodies associated with climbing and mountaineering) he is not now able to give legal advice that might relate to current cases as he has been appointed a District Judge, and so is precluded from legal practice.

He is a former Midlands Area Secretary and a former Chair of the Mercian Mountaineering Club .
