She also sits at the Mayor‘s and City of London County Court and covers a range of civil and criminal cases.
Deborah Taylor has risen up to the judicial ranks; she also serves as a Commissioner for the Judicial Appointments Commission – the independent commission that selects candidates for judicial office in courts and tribunals in England and Wales, and for some tribunals whose jurisdiction extends to Scotland or Northern Ireland. She has a real interest in improving the diversity of the judicial bench.
