Ministry of Justice | 2014-02-03 00:00:00

The Ministry of Justice has succeeded in its representation to have an increase in the number of Judicial Clerks for the Supreme Court by ten (10). This brings the complement of Judicial Clerks at the Supreme Court to twelve (12). The increase will allow the release of positions from the Court of Appeal that have been on loan to the Supreme Court and cause the full complement of seven Judicial Clerks to be available to the Court of Appeal. The recruitment process to fill these positions has commenced.

A Judicial Clerk is a qualified attorney who provides assistance to a judge in researching issues before the court and aids in expediting the judges’ ability to hand down judgments. The increase will therefore allow for more timely delivery of judgments in both courts.

This initiative is part of the agenda for increasing efficiency and effectiveness in the justice sector.
