Among recruitment exercises which were completed in 2012/13, eleven candidates were Salaried District Judges at the time of application for these posts. The results do not include fee-paid deputy district judges. Some of these candidates may have applied for more than one position during this time-period.

These figures exclude exercises where initial recommendations were made during 2012/13 but are not fully completed, such as the 2012 Circuit Judge recruitment.

Results from April 2013 to date were published the 5th December at http://jac.judiciary.gov.uk/about-jac/823.htm and will not be included in this PQ.

This information derives from information provided by the candidates themselves. There is no way to independently confirm the completeness or accuracy of this data.
