What do District Judges do?District Judges (Magistrates’ courts) hear criminal cases, youth cases and also some civil proceedings in Magistrates’ courts. They can also be authorised to hear cases in the Family Court. Some are authorised to deal with extradition proceedings and terrorist cases. They are also authorised to sit as prison adjudicators. They often tend to deal with more complex matters in the Magistrates’ Court and District Judges (Magistrates’ courts) usually hear cases alone.
Ruth Peters, Olliers Business Development Director commented:“On behalf of everyone at Olliers, I would like to offer our congratulations to Alex. This is a fantastic, well-deserved achievement and we are all extremely proud of Alex. Alex was a fantastic and well liked solicitor at Olliers as well as a friend to many of us. Whilst we will all miss workings alongside Alex we are delighted for her and wish her well in the next stage of her career.”
