Welcome to the Magistrates' Association
The Magistrates' Association is the membership organisation for magistrates in England and Wales. It is funded by its members to represent their interests.
The Association supports magistrates in dispensing justice fairly and efficiently within their courts, and works to promote confidence in the magistrates' courts system.
The objects for which the Association is established and incorporated are to promote the sound administration of the law by educating and instructing magistrates and others in the law, the administration of justice, the treatment of offenders and the best methods of preventing crime; and promoting discussion on developments in the law and the administration of justice.
