The Welsh Language Scheme was developed following a public consultation in October 2015.
The scheme sets out how the JAC will treat the Welsh and English languages when assessing candidates’ suitability for judicial appointment in Wales, and explains how candidates will be able to communicate with the JAC in English or Welsh, according to their personal choice.
