What the Solicitor Judges Division does

The SJD supports aspiring, current and retired solicitor judges. It does this by providing career-enhancing events, materials and networking opportunities.

It was set up to help solicitor judges and the Law Society work together more effectively. It encourages solicitor judges to use their experiences and expertise to support:

  • solicitors who want to become judges
  • colleagues already in the judiciary who want to take on more senior roles
