Diversifying public recruitment. The case of magistrates
Posted on 24 November 2016

par Florence Audier, Maya Bacache-Beauvallet, Eric Mathias

The “Outreau” affair has pointed to a potential problem in the recruitment of magistrates: their youth would not always give them the experience needed to deal with scabrous human situations. Other recruitment channels than competition after graduation are nevertheless opened since the 1970s, allowing experienced professionals to accede to the magistracy directly on title or via specific competitions. A quarter of the magistrates enter the judicial system by one of these so-called "lateral" channels, that is, by a procedure other than that employed by the very young lawyers. What are the consequences of these new forms of recruitments? Do these judges keep a specificity in their activities and their career? What are their motivations and expectations? Does their recruitment affect the organization of work? Has the desired diversification any effect?

The research presented in this book focuses on the careers and career paths of these magistrates based on interviews and a questionnaire survey of all the magistrates who started their activity in a jurisdiction via a "lateral" path. The book offers for the first time a quantified and extensive survey on the recruitment of civil servants through channels other than competition.
