Judicial Conduct Investigations Office

The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) (formerly the Office for Judicial Complaints) supports the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice in their joint responsibility for judicial discipline. It seeks to ensure that all judicial disciplinary issues are dealt with consistently, fairly and efficiently.

The JCIO operates in accordance with the Judicial Discipline (Prescribed Procedures) Regulations 2014 and the supporting rules.  It can only deal with complaints about a judicial office-holder’s personal conduct – it cannot deal with complaints about judicial decisions or about case management.
