Judicial Work Shadowing Scheme

The Lord President, Lord Carloway, has launched a new Judicial Work Shadowing Scheme, which gives any qualified solicitor, solicitor advocate or advocate the opportunity to apply to spend up to three days observing the work of a judicial office holder.

The aim is to encourage legal practitioners to consider applying for judicial office and is also open to serving sheriffs and sheriffs principal who have an interest in applying to be a Senator of the College of Justice.

“I welcome this scheme and hope that it serves to provide an insight into the working lives of a judge or sheriff and demystify what the roles involve,” said Lord Carloway. “In particular, I hope that it will capture the interest of potential candidates well in advance of the date upon which they might consider applying for judicial office.”
