DHCJ 2016 Candidate Feedback
16 November 2016
Last year’s successful candidates just announced here – why the secrecy?!!
***** UPDATE 15 Noveber 2016*****
This competition launched today deadline for applications 13:00 Tuesday 29 November 2016.
In many ways this looks like the easiest and most straight forward competition that the JAC has run for a fee paid role. But they are looking for top calibre, exceptional candidates. “Those appointed to sit as Deputy High Court Judges will be expected to undertake work which would otherwise be undertaken by salaried High Court Judges.” This is their 3rd such DHCJ competition and like the first is hoping to attract applicants who do not currently sit.
At A Glance
- Four year fixed term basis
- Shortlisting from 2 competencies 250 words to demonstrate: ‘Exercising Judgement’ and ‘Assimilating and Clarifying Information’. NB in addition, within 500 words describing a significant piece of recent work.
