Get rid of magistrates and have district judges only for minor trials

Comment 4th September 2010

Why do we have magistrates?

Ever since anyone was allowed to become a magistrate you have to ask yourself whether they now do a good job as they have no clue about the law. The court clerks meant to help them are often no more clued up on the law or procedure.

All minor cases should instead come before a district judge who is trained and knows the law.

As well as being more efficient it should also save money in the long run with quicker justice and less poor decisions.

Judges are also undoubtedly more independent.

Why does this matter?

It should help improve the justice system.
