An exercise is due to launch on 20th March to identify candidates to recommend for the post of Deputy District Judge.

This is an excellent opportunity for solicitors, barristers and chartered legal executives, with 150 vacancies anticipated across England and Wales.

Deputy District Judges sit on a fee-paid basis in the county courts and district registries of the High Court. The work of district judges involves a wide spectrum of civil and family law cases such as claims for damages and injunctions, possession proceedings against mortgage borrowers and property tenants, divorces, child proceedings, domestic violence injunctions and insolvency proceedings.

Who can apply

Applications are invited from solicitors and barristers in England and Wales and Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives with at least 5 years post qualification legal experience.

Whilst there is no upper or lower age limit for applicants, the age at which someone is appointed must allow for a reasonable length of service before the statutory retirement age of 70. For these posts, a reasonable length of service is usually considered to be 4 years.

The JAC encourages diversity and welcomes applications from groups currently under-represented in the judiciary. The principles of fair and open competition will apply and recommendation for appointment will be made solely on merit.
