COVID-19 Suspension of Activity


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update: NIJAC has suspended all but essential business. Matters suspended include outreach and engagement, the Judicial Shadowing Scheme, face to face meetings and committees plus assessment days.


For any queries regarding schemes please contact and a member of the judicial appointments team will respond to your query.


For any other queries contact


The suspension of activity will be on a temporary basis while staff are required to work from home. NIJAC will continue with other activity such as launching recruitment schemes, receiving applications, shortlisting and other commitments as a public body. This is in order to ensure we are in a position to resume normal operations as soon as possible to meet the needs of courts and tribunals.


This information will be reviewed on 20 April 2020.
