Please note that the International Team of the Judicial Office usually only has responsibility for contact between judges. The Judicial Office is separate from the Ministry of Justice. If the enquiry relates to an interest in the administration of the courts or to the UK Government’s policy in relation to the justice system as a whole then the enquiry should be made to The Ministry of Justice (external link, opens in a new tab).

The Judicial Office is a unique branch of the civil service, dedicated to strengthening the rule of law and improving the administration of justice by supporting the leadership and governance of our independent judiciary.

We support about 25,000 judicial office holders on a wide range of issues and assist the Lord Chief Justice and the Senior President of Tribunals to fulfil their responsibilities to the judiciary and an ever-evolving justice system. We provide operational support, policy, legal and handling advice through a number of specialist teams.
