The Magistrates Association is a national charity and the only independent voice of the magistracy. Find out more about us and what we do

Collective Voice

As the only independent voice of the magistracy we influence policy at the highest levels of government, conduct research and represent our views through media engagement

Training and Support

We keep our members up to date with the latest information through our magazine, email news bulletins and training materials

Magistrates in the Community

We support the Magistrates in the Community, the MA’s community engagement initiative, to increase public awareness of the role of magistrates and wider criminal and civil justice system


We host and support events for our members, both sitting and retired, including the annual MA Conference, Awards and AGM
