The Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) has set up a new team within the organisation to lead three initiatives specifically responding to the need to improve judicial diversity. All three initiatives have been designed to work quickly and are running in addition to our ongoing diversity and outreach programme. We are now inviting potential candidates to take part in our first initiative – running a pilot programme of targeted outreach and search.
We have launched our new website!
As part of building the new website, we asked current, previous and potential candidates for feedback and undertook user research. We fed all these findings into the new website and have been able to build a site that prioritises the information candidates have told us that they are looking for and is easier to navigate.
We are continuing to develop the site over the coming months, so if you have any feedback please do let us know Send us feedback on our new website
