Musings and Snippets from a recently retired JP. I served for 31 years, mostly in west London. I was Chairman of my Bench for some years, and a member of the National Bench Chairmen's Forum All cases are based on real ones, but anonymised and composited. All opinions are those of one or more individuals. JPs swear to enforce the law of the land, whether or not they approve of it. Nothing on here constitutes legal advice.

The BBC website has a piece about a magistrates' court today (mercifully not mine). Have a look here for a refreshingly fair view of what we do, from the public side of the bench. Thanks to the commenters who pointed me to the piece.
