Court of Appeal Judge

It is true of judges at most levels, and certainly those in the Court of Appeal, that far more work has to be done out of court than in court.

All Court of Appeal Judges are senior judges with lengthy judicial experience. Appointment is by The King on the recommendation of a selection panel convened by the Judicial Appointments Commission. The Court of Appeal is based at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, but has occasional sittings elsewhere in England and Wales. It consists of a Civil division and a Criminal division, which between them hear appeals in a wide range of cases covering civil, family and criminal justice.
