Men are not eligible to apply ....

The Judiciary has announced a new initiative aimed at improving diversity in the role of Deputy High Court Judge. This new route to the High Court is explained by Lady Justice Hallett in this video.  Places on the programme are limited to women, BAME candidates and those from a less advantaged background, because these are the areas where the judiciary is said to be significantly less representative of society.  Taking part in the programme will not guarantee appointment by the Judicial Appointments Commission as a Deputy High Court judge or success in a subsequent High Court exercise.
