Media enquiries

Find out how to contact us for media enquiries about the magistracy. Please note that our members can’t comment on specific cases.

We can provide journalists with quotes on news stories relevant to the work of magistrates in criminal and civil matters, the Magistrates’ Association, and criminal justice in general. We can also arrange interviews with our spokespeople.

If you require information on courts and procedures, please contact HM Courts and Tribunals Service.

How to contact us

Our press office deals with media enquiries only. If you are not a journalist or have a different enquiry, please call our main switchboard on 020 7387 2353 or visit our contact page.

We are open 9.30am – 5pm, Monday to Friday. For out-of-hours enquiries, please leave us a message and we will get back to you when we return to the office.
