Alternatively, you can contact us on judicialworkshadowingscheme@justice.gov.uk

Please Note:

Due to the extremely high number of applications received, it may take between 12 and 14 weeks to process your application including the necessary checks with professional bodies before the application is processed.

We aim to prioritise placements and preference given to applicants who are applying for a judicial appointment within the next 12 months.

You should also be aware that the entire process may take some six months from initial online registration to placement.

(*Please be aware that demand is particularly high for the Courts Judiciary, London & South East Region and North West regions).
