Office for Judicial Complaints ( OJC )
The Office for Judicial Complaints (OJC), created on 3 April 2006, supports the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice in their joint responsibility for the system of judicial complaints and discipline. It seeks to ensure that all judicial disciplinary issues are dealt with consistently, fairly and efficiently.
The OJC deals with complaints about a judicial office-holder's personal conduct - it cannot deal with complaints about judicial decisions or about case management (such as the type of sentence or whether a claim succeeds or not).
The OJC is an associated office of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Its status, governance and operational objectives were set out in a Memorandum of Understanding between the DCA, the Judicial Office and the OJC.
If you have a complaint about the OJC you should contact the Judicial Appointments and Conduct Ombudsman.
Guide to Judicial Conduct
The Judges' Council of England & Wales issues publications relating to its role, including a guide to judicial conduct which is available to download on the right.
