Hello to all
I am recruiting at the moment and normally do not recruit magistrates. I have had a enquiry from a new direct access Family Court Magistrate and I am told has no role in the criminal court. Does this still prevent them from applying? Any advice?

The Code precludes anyone who is a ‘Justice of the Peace’ to being an ICV as it is a conflict of interest. From my understanding, Family Court Magistrates are Justices of the Peace so point 22 of the Code of Practice means there is a conflict here I think.
Hope that’s helpful
