Stronger training provisions to be included in judicial appointments reform bill

Sedentary judges seeking promotion must undergo specific training in order to be considered suitable as part of the proposed reforms to the judge’s appointment process.

Justice Secretary Helen McEntee is expected to release her proposals for the long-awaited reform of the judicial appointment process earlier this month, the Irish Times reported.

The bill will reportedly include a provision requiring incumbent judges to undergo training and education programs to advance to higher courts.

A similar provision stipulates that attorneys pursuing a banking career for the first time must undergo training prior to their appointment.

The stricter training regulations, which were not previously announced, were reportedly developed by the minister in consultation with Attorney General Paul Gallagher.
