neilmac (asker): 10:20am May 2, 2004: "juez de paz" is already a JP so I'm looking for another term; is there such a thing as a "community judge", I wonder?
xxxKirstyMacC: 1:09pm May 2, 2004: No community judge in the UK, but District Judge in Civ. & Crim. Matters -




Local Magistrate

neutral Antonio Castillo Gonz�lez: I am not sure that this responds to the question about "juez comunal". Anyway, there are many references about "justice of the peace" in UK web pages, such as www.clacksweb.org.uk/dyna/jpeace/ - 20k 33 mins
