Notes :

  1. * Not all judges declare their ethnicity and so the ethnicity figure is calculated as a percentage of those members of the judiciary who have agreed to provide ethnicity data and from whom we have collected this information.
  2. Ethnicity data has been gathered through the 2007 diversity survey (carried out by Judicial Office). In May 2009, the Judicial Office began collecting ethnicity dta from all new judicial appointees with the help of the Ministry of Justice.
  3. Implementation of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 began in November 2008 and is bringing together the administrative and record-keeping facilities of a large number of tribunals with varying levels of data. Diversity data for the tribunals will be supplied following an exercise to review and update the information currently held.
  4. PRFD stands for Principal Registry of the Family Division
