Before beginning an application, ensure you have read the application guidance which can be found on the following pages: How to Volunteer and Frequently Asked Questions. You may find it helpful to have both pages available whilst completing the application.
Please ensure you have engaged in the direct research before applying. Please note that the Family Court in North and West Cumbria sits at both Carlisle and Workington. Therefore there is an expectation that successful applicants will be able to sit at both courthouses.
Magistrates will be selected and appointed solely on merit.
Applications are welcome from anyone who meets the eligibility criteria for appointment and who believes they have the necessary qualities. Applications are particularly welcome from members of groups currently under-represented amongst the magistracy. That includes members of Black and Minority Ethnic communities, people under the age of 50, people from non-managerial or professional occupations, and people with a disability who are able, either unassisted or with reasonable adjustments, to carry out the full range of a magistrate’s duties.
Completion of the diversity monitoring form is mandatory. This information will not be considered as part of the application which is assessed solely on merit.
