The Solicitor Judges Division is hosting a free judicial appointments preparation event at the Law Society for the district judge (magistrate court) exercise launching on 21 March 2017.

Focusing on the evidence-based selection process, you will be provided with an understanding of the application process and the competency-based framework used by the Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC). In addition, the event  will include a networking drinks reception where you will get an opportunity to meet members of the judiciary. 

Attendees who make it through to the next stage of the JAC competition, will also be given the opportunity of further support with an invitation to attend another free session led by Manjula Bray to develop your face to face interviewing skills. 

Early preparation for all judicial appointments is key, and it is recommended that current fee-paid Tribunal and fee-paid District Judges (Magistrates’ Court) take up this opportunity as well as solicitors considering the judiciary as a possible career path.
