Do you have the experience and qualities needed to be a judge? Would a judicial role suit you? How do you successfully make the transition from solicitor to sheriff?

Joining the judiciary is a great opportunity for solicitors who want to take their career in a challenging new direction. This event in conjunction with Judicial Appointments Board for Scotland will bring together members of the judiciary for an interactive panel discussion. Speakers will each give a short introduction explaining their background and how and why they made the transition into the judiciary. We’ll then invite questions for discussion.
