    Anybody can apply to become a magistrate but whether you're actually given the position is another matter altogether. There are a lot of things which you must be able to demonstate and I'm not sure that you would able to do this given that you'd be "fresh-out-of-uni." You can visit this site here: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/CrimeJus...rate/DG_071395 for further information and to download an application form.

    I am still in university, and would like to continue with that. I thought the magistrates would be a part time thing...could you explain to me how I can go about that?

    It is a part time think, but what Mr Deeds is saying is that you need life experience to be one and it is unlikely you have it.

    Furthermore, how do you think being a Magistrate would aid a training contract application - especially when one of the terms of office is that you must not seek to gain personal benefit from it.

    It means that he doesn't know anyone who is a barrister or a solicitor and is worried about getting a training contract.
