Judicial Support

Judges are directly supported by associates (who provide secretarial and court reporting services) and clerks (who provide research assistance). Although these staff are formally employed by the Ministry of Justice, they report directly to judges as their personal staff.

The Chief Justice, President, and Chief High Court Judge also have a small staff to assist with their administrative roles. Though formally employed by the Ministry of Justice, these staff also work to the judges under protocols which preserve judicial independence.
