Become a member

The Association is your professional body – why not join us?

The Association has represented and supported the ACT’s Justices of the Peace since 1990.  Our members deliver an accessible, professional JP service to the ACT community.

Membership is open to Justices of the Peace for the ACT. If you are training to become a JP you may join as an Associate Member pending formal appointment as a JP.

Like many professional roles, the role of a Justice of the Peace is evolving.  It is influenced by changes to laws and changes in community expectations.  As an active Justice of the Peace you should keep up to date with the changes.

The ACT Justice of the Peace Association (ACT JPA) can help you!

To encourage a consistent and professional service to the community we have prepared a range of guidance notes for most JP functions. These are available to members through our website in a ‘members only’ section.  We help our members stay informed about developments that affect a Justice of the Peace’s role by holding members’ seminars several times a year. Our journal, Justice Matters, also includes regular articles on developments in the law and better practice for JPs.

We also prepare and distribute to our members legal and other literature of interest to Justices of the Peace, their functions and interests.

Join the ACT JPs Association now, and stay informed!

On joining you will receive:

  • subscription for the year
  • full access to the ACT JPA website Members’ Area
  • ACT JPA lapel badge
  • JP Logbook and
  • recent issues of our journal Justice Matters.
