Stephen Nichols is a District judge (civil). He was previously a Deputy District judge while working in private practice.
“When I began my career as a CILEx Fellow I didn't for one moment think I might one day become a District judge. There is great satisfaction in assisting people to resolve their disputes, which is a large part of the work. The camaraderie in the District Bench is second to none. The work is interesting and, most importantly from a judge’s point of view, enjoyable.”
