Judicial College Strategy 2015-2017

The Lord Chief Justice has statutory responsibility for the training of the judiciary of England and Wales under the Constitutional Reform Act 2005. This includes magistrates and legal advisers.

The Senior President of Tribunals has statutory responsibility for the training of judges and other members of tribunals pursuant to the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. He has a further statutory responsibility under section 2 of that Act to have regard to the need for members of tribunals to be experts in the subject-matter and law relevant to cases in which they decide matters and for tribunal proceedings to be handled quickly and efficiently. His duties in relation to judicial training also extend to judges and other members of tribunals in reserved tribunals across the UK.
