Free workshop – Becoming a BAME judge

12 March 2018

As part of its positive action strategy, the Law Society is running a free workshop, 'Judicial appointments: interview training for solicitors'. The course is aimed at Black and Asian solicitors who are currently under-represented in the judiciary.

The workshop will equip attendees with the skills to help enhance their applications and interview performance. This training course has been developed for solicitors with a minimum of 5 years’ PQE who are considering applying for a judicial appointment.

If you believe that you are able to demonstrate the JAC’s competencies, or are looking to develop them further, then this training event will be invaluable to your career progression.

The intensive one-day training course will focus on tailoring submissions to make a positive impact in the competency-based application and selection process. Attendees will receive practical advice on completing the application form, incorporating their experiences, and gain invaluable interview practice with feedback.

If you would like to be considered for a place, please send your CV and a covering letter to Jerry Garvey, Diversity and Inclusion officer, outlining why you consider yourself suitable for judicial appointment (bearing in mind the skills and qualities for appointment and how you believe you would benefit from the course).

The course will take place on Saturday 30 June 2018 at the Law Society, London. The closing date for applications is Friday 15 June 2018.

Places are limited to 10 delegates per course and will be allocated based on your CV and the information you provide.
