They do work long hours at a time in their career when they might expect to decrease hours. Cases are getting more complicated and there are a lot more documents to read. It’s hard work! Reply Link Anonymous 30 June 2008 at 16:34 Overworked judges I have considerable sympathy for the Judges’ complaints. We recently had a trial in which the first thing the QBD Judge said was that the Court service didn’t have anyone available to bring the trial bundles from his chambers to the Court room, and that he desperately needed help. We and the other law firm lent a couple of paralegals. Needless to say, none of the clients present from both sides (who had flown to England to be present) were very impressed by this state of affairs.
