The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, has issued the latest “Authorisation of court staff to exercise judicial functions and Delegation of Authorisation”. It replaces the authorisation issued in April 2020.

The Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Staff) Act 2018 provides powers to authorise court staff to provide legal advice to judges of the family court and justices of the peace and to exercise judicial functions where procedure rules so provide.

The authorisation can be read in full below.
