Judicial Conduct Investigations Office

The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) supports the Lord Chancellor and the Lady Chief Justice in their joint responsibility for judicial discipline.

We deal with misconduct complaints against:

  • Salaried and fee-paid courts judges
  • Judges and non-legal members of tribunals
  • Coroners

Misconduct means personal misbehaviour which is serious enough to require the Lord Chancellor and the Lady Chief Justice to take formal disciplinary action. 

You can find more information about the types of complaints we can and cannot deal with here.

You can find information about how to make a complaint here.
