Trans. Devon Assoc., vol 10 (1878), pp. 269-275.


A.H.A. Hamilton

Prepared by Michael Steer

JPs constituted a major element of the English (later British) governmental system. The JP system has been termed the squirearchy (i.e., dominance by the land-owning gentry). Depending on the jurisdiction, JPs' dispense summary justice or merely deal with local administrative applications in common law jurisdictions. JPs were appointed or elected from the citizens of the jurisdiction in which they served, and are (or were) usually not required to have any formal legal education to qualify for the office. Being unpaid, undertaken voluntarily and sometimes more for the sake of renown or to confirm the justice's standing within the community, the JP was typically a member of the gentry. JPs' conducted arraignments in criminal cases, and tried misdemeanours and infractions of local ordinances and bylaws.
