Jersey's Department for Community and Constitutional Affairs has initiated a public consultation on strengthening the island's judicial independence.

The consultation sets out proposals intended to confirm and protect the independence of the judiciary in Jersey, and establish a modern, clear, and transparent legislative framework for the selection, appointment, and tenure of the judiciary and law officers.

It proposes the creation of an independent body with responsibility for judicial selection and appointment procedures, to be called the Judicial and Legal Services Commission.

Jersey's Chief Minister, Ian Gorst, has encouraged the public, the legal profession, and the judiciary to participate in the consultation, so that his government can give further consideration to the proposals and bring forward any necessary amendments.

The consultation is open until August 4, 2017.
