The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

The blog is written by a team, who may or may not be JPs, but all of whom are interested in the Magistrates' Courts.

On The Hurry-Up

Thanks to CrimeLine for this link to the video training material for the Stop Delaying Justice training that has been done by almost every legal adviser, District Judge, and court chairman.

A lot depends on good teamwork between the Legal Adviser and the parties, but if it works (as it needs to) it will go a significant way towards helping courts to do more cases with fewer resources.
