Applications sought for the office of High Court Judge
Date:25 FEB 2008

The Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) is now inviting applications for the office of High Court Judge.

The JAC has been asked to select twenty-one candidates for appointment to the High Court. This selection exercise is to provide 15 candidates for the Queen's Bench Division and 6 candidates for the Chancery Division.

The Lord Chancellor has agreed that all successful applicants will be guaranteed an offer of appointment. However, the timing of any offer will be dependent on when posts become available. Those successful in this exercise are currently expected to be appointed in the period from about October 2008 to around October 2009, although there may be some later appointments.

You are eligible to apply if you have been a solicitor or barrister for 10 years or a Circuit Judge for two years.

All posts will be based at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The closing date for applications is 4 March 2008.
