This report presents comprehensive statistics on the judicial selection process and recommendations for Employment Tribunal Members. This exercise ran from August 2009 to January 2010.
Most judicial recruitment exercises are run by the Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC). However, Employment Tribunal Members are not listed in schedule 14 of the Constitutional Reform Act 2006, and this exercise was therefore able to be run by the Tribunals.

The England and Wales judicial system is a result of 1,000 years of legal evolution. The judges and magistrates who sit to pass judgement in court have been independent in the way they work for centuries, but as of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 judicial independence is now officially enshrined in law to enhance accountability, public confidence and effectiveness.
The Judiciary of England and Wales website includes information on the history of the judiciary, the roles and responsibilities of the different members of the judiciary, and the latest court judgments. Summary statistics on the number of judicial office holders in post are also published (including breakdowns by gender and ethnicity).
Other areas relevant to the judiciary are the responsibility of separate bodies:
the independent Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) was formed in April 2006 and has responsibility for the selection of judicial office holders
the Office of Judicial Complaints (OJC), also created in April 2006, seeks to ensure that all judicial disciplinary issues are dealt with consistently, fairly and efficiently
the Judicial Studies Board (JSB) is directly responsible for training full (salaried) and part-time (fee-paid) judges in England and Wales
The Ministry of Justice itself is responsible for funding and administering judges' pay and pensions and setting their terms and conditions of service. It also separately collects information about judicial sitting days and the number of magistrates.

Information on the number of judges in post is collected and published by the Judicial Office. The data are held on the bespoke Judicial database, which is a live data management database that records personal details as well as information on items such as appointments, authorisations and training.
The judicial sitting days data are collected on a manual form, and returned monthly from the courts to the Ministry of Justice. Summary figures are published once a year in the ‘Judicial and Court Statistics’ command paper.
Details of the data collection in the separate bodies mentioned above can be found using the links under the Other websites & related statistics section.
