Judicial Studies Board Annual Lecture 2010
Speech by Lord Judge, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
Lord Judge outlines the history of the Judicial Studies Board and highlights some of its most important successes. He also takes a look at the issues that affect the future role of the JSB.
"Continuing education is now integral to the working life of a judge. We all think so. The old days of resentment and complaint about interference with judicial independence have all gone.
"And under the new arrangements of the judicial training strategy, by which judges choose the training they want from a prospectus published by the JSB, the response to the first prospectus published last September which covers seminars from April this year to March next has been nothing short of magnificent."
