For over 40 years the Commonwealth Magistrates’ and Judges’ Association (CMJA) has played a vital role in developing judicial standards and strengthening judicial independence and enhancing the rule of law, thereby touching the lives of millions of people.
“We are not, as we are sometimes seen, mere custodians of a body of arid prescriptive rules but are, with others, the guardians of an all but sacred flame which animates and enlightens the society in which we live.”
The Rt Hon. Lord Bingham of Cornhill
The CMJA acts as a watchdog when there are threats to judicial independence and cooperates with other organizations in promoting the Commonwealth fundamental values;
The CMJA organises conferences, seminars and training courses to improve the standards of administration of justice across the Commonwealth;
