Currently information is published in various locations, however there is an active project to deliver a website for the courts which will provide relevant information, such as the list of the judiciary, from all the different Court Service departments in one place.
For the moment the current list of the judiciary is published on the Jersey Legal Information Board website. Steps have been taken to ensure that this page includes the Jurats. As the information requested is accessible by other means, Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied. Please see the following link:
