The UK Supreme Court is hosting a webinar on career pathways to becoming a Justice. The event aims to provide early and mid-career legal professionals with an opportunity to learn more about the appointment process and what it takes to become a well-qualified candidate, enabling aspiring future Justices to kick-start long-term career planning.

The Court is committed to supporting increased diversity within the judiciary and we particularly welcome participants from groups that are currently underrepresented in this field.

Chaired by the Supreme Court's Chief Executive, Vicky Fox, speakers will:

  • Provide an overview of the eligibility requirements and appointment criteria and an understanding of the necessary skills and experience to become a Supreme Court Justice.
  • Outline career pathways to the Court and offer first–hand insights into their journey to becoming a Justice.
  • Provide advice on long-term career planning and development for future applicants.

Discussions will be followed by a Q&A Session.
