Judges


COMMENT

Most of the judges dealt within this section are judges of the Superior Court of Ontario (which includes the Ontario Divisional Court), and those 'above' them in the Ontario Court of Appeal. These judges are appointed under s.96 of the Constitution Act. But there are several other types of judges acting in the family, criminal, small claims and federal courts - and as well in the Supreme Court of Canada.

You're going to be intimidated by judges, but really they're just lawyers that have been offered - and accepted - a judicial appointment. That we respect judges is a socially healthy thing, as it's a very difficult job and serves an absolutely necessary function - remember that when you think they've made a bad ruling against you or your client.
