Support Schemes


If you are planning to apply for judicial appointment and have a particular vacancy in mind, the Targeted Outreach and Research team is ready to offer support in a confidential, friendly and safe space. The team aim to support improved outcomes for JAC target groups (BAME, women, disabled  and solicitor candidates).  The programme focusses specifically on senior salaried roles, and their main fee-paid pipelines, that remain particularly underrepresented for BAME candidates: namely High Court; Deputy High Court; Circuit Judge; Recorder and Upper Tribunal.
