Search begins for new Attorney General

The Cabinet Office is beginning the process of recruiting the next Attorney General of the Isle of Man.

Stephen Harding retired earlier this year due to ill-health having previously been suspended since 2013, leaving John Quinn as the Acting Attorney General for the last three years.

A panel made up of the Chief Minister, the First Deemster and the President of Tynwald will assess the candidates before making a recommendation to the Queen, who will formally make the appointment.

Candidates must have at least 10 years experience at the Manx Bar, knowledge of court practices and common law procedure and management experience.
