Pre-Application Judicial Education Programme: Winter 2020/Spring 2021 applications now open


The Winter 2020/Spring 2021 round of applications for the Pre-Application Judicial Education Programme (PAJE) opened today (Monday 19 October 2020).

PAJE supports talented lawyers from underrepresented groups to feel more equipped, confident and prepared when considering applying for a future judicial role.

In light of the current circumstances on COVID-19, there will be three virtual discussion group courses from January 2021. Each course will consist of four discussion group sessions, which will last up to two hours, on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

Applications to join these virtual judge-led courses for Winter/Spring 2021 opened on Monday 19 October 2020. Find the application form and more details on the PAJE webpage.

Completed application forms should be submitted to by no later than 23:59 on Monday 16 November.
