Members who practice in civil and family litigation consider applying for appointment as a Deputy District Judge in the forthcoming competition. The competition opens on 19 March and those interested can sign up for alerts at Judicial Appointments Commission (list-manage.com). I am anxious to encourage as many local applications as possible. Applications are particularly welcome from groups that are under-represented in the judiciary.
Further information on the role and on making applications can be found on the Judicial Appointment Commission website. If any of your members would like to speak to me, to a serving District judge or an existing Deputy District Judge to learn more about the role, they are very welcome to get in touch.
