Commissioned by the Judicial Executive Board

A report commissioned by the Judicial Executive Board and undertaken by Professor Dame Hazel Genn DBE, QC looking into “The attractiveness of senior judicial appointments to highly qualified practitioners” has been published.

The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, said:

“The last two High Court selection exercises have been very successful with no shortage of high quality candidates applying. However, it is clear that there are a number of apparently highly qualified potential candidates who do not apply, and it is important to discover why.”
