Thomson, Ian (JAC), Judicial Appointments Commission

Dear Mr Popescu

Thank you for your email of 29th May 2018 concerning your Freedom of Information request. You have asked:-

The different between "fee-paid" and "salaried part-time" judges; and

Provide the MoJ documents regulating the status, obligations and restriction of the "fee-paid" and "salaried part-time" judges.

In relation to your first point, the Judicial Office website describes a fee-paid judge as: Fee-paid (part-time) positions are usually similar to the equivalent salaried appointment, but may deal with the less complex or serious cases. Fee-paid positions – including tribunal appointments, Recorders, and Deputy District Judges – are paid according to the number of sittings or days worked. The number of sitting days varies depending on the type of appointment, and will generally be at least 15 days a year.

In relation to your second point, as this relation to the conduct on Judges, it is more for the MoJ or Judicial Office to respond. They can be contacted at
