'Good Character': is there anything that might rule me out?

The JAC is required by statute to select only persons of ‘good character’. The JAC will determine a candidate’s good character just prior to making selection recommendations. In this Character part of the JAC Self Evaluation tool you will be asked a series of questions relating to character issues that you must declare whenever you apply for a judicial post through the JAC. If you give a response indicating that you have something to declare, you will be provided with guidance from the JAC's Good Character Guide to assist you in understanding the JAC's policy on the particular issue(s) in relation to your declaration. Consider the responses and guidance carefully, as they will give you an indication of how the Commission is likely to view your declaration if you decide to make an application for judicial appointment. It should take you no longer than 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
