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.

Cheap at Twice the Price!
My Bench Chairman tells me that he was recently shown some figures about magistrates' expenses. We can claim travel and subsistence costs, and of course these vary between individuals. A rough calculation shows that over the more than 700 JPs in our area the average claim was £6.85 a week.
