I am a Magistrate and a member of The Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Committee for Nottinghamshire, we are currently seeking to recruit new magistrates to commence sitting in 2019.
You cannot apply if you are currently employed by the police service and, if a retired officer, must have been retired for at least two years. JP’s cannot sit after the age of 70, so applicants should be under 65.
Magistrates are unpaid members of the judiciary but can claim expenses and an allowance for lost wages if appropriate.
If you or someone you know may be interested, more information and application forms can be found on the following website:
Applications should be sent by 30 April 2018 to the Nottinghamshire Advisory Committee via the Legal Administration Support Team at:
We will be interviewing applicants between April and July 2018. Successful candidates who are appointed as magistrates would be expected to sit at both Nottingham and Mansfield Magistrates Courts.
Bruce Cameron JP.
