Think you could be a magistrate?

Join Civil Service Local Midlands at our Discovery Session 'Out of the ordinary – Introducing magistrates and their work' at Nottingham Justice Centre.

This bite sized learning event is one of our 'Discovering the criminal justice system' events and is open to all civil servants of any grade from any department and supports the 'brilliant Civil Service vision' of skilled people.

This event introduces delegates to the challenges and opportunities for personal development in this role, building capability, confidence and resilience.  

Delegates will hear from serving magistrates, take part in a mock trial and observe part of a court in session.  

Come and see for yourself how local justice operates, meet some of those involved in its delivery and discover the opportunities for you to get involved.  

Date: 3 July

Time: 9.00am to 4.00pm

Location: Nottingham Justice Centre, Carrington Street, Nottingham, NG2 1EE

Places are limited so book now on Eventbrite

Tea and coffee will be provided.  Delegates should bring their own lunch.

    Hello, I am very interested but unfortunately cannot make this event. Will you be holding one again at a later date?

      We do have other criminal justice sessions planned but they depend on resources. Watch this space

    Is this event just open to people in the Midlands area please?

    I too would love to attend but cannot do the date. It sounds so interesting and is an area I have looked at myself as a friend is a magistrate.
    Perhaps a Birmingham event could be considered as the train links are easier.

    I would have like to have attended but unfortunately it is sold out. A similar event in Birmingham would be good.

    Hi I can no longer attend this event- who do I notify? As the event is sold out it would be good if someone else can take my place.
