Following last year's extremely successful event in Manchester, we are excited to be holding the 2019 MA Conference, Awards and AGM in beautiful and historic Stratford-upon-Avon.

You will have the opportunity to network with magistrates from around the country; hear from key figures in law, government, and the criminal justice system; participate in thought-provoking breakout sessions; and meet MA officers and staff.

We have also introduced new conference features, including topical panel discussions and lightning talks! For more information about the lightning talks, including a submission form please click here.

The theme of this year's conference is THE CHANGING FACE OF JUSTICE.

Please join us for an interactive look at the future of the magistracy against the backdrop of the wider justice system.

We will be exploring trends, developments and changes in legislation across an array of topical issues including mental health, stalking, innovations in information technology, intersectional approaches to justice, and MUCH MORE!
