To celebrate the start of Volunteers’ Week (3-9 June) our day in the life series continues with a video featuring Magistrate Tom Quarton-Manuel. 

Magistrates, also known as Justices of the Peace, are individuals from all walks of life who are passionate about making a difference in their local communities. They volunteer for at least 13 days a year, plus training, to hear a variety of cases in our courts. Magistrates sit in the Magistrates’ courts, dealing with criminal and civil proceedings, or the Family Court, or both. The role is unpaid, and many magistrates are employed alongside their role.
