The jurisdiction of a deputy district judge is generally the same as that of a district judge.

The jurisdiction of a Deputy District Judge is generally the same as that of a district judge sitting on a fee-paid basis in the County Courts and district registries of the High Court.

Deputy district judges are appointed by the Lord Chancellor following a 'fair and open competition' administered by the Judicial Appointments Commission. They are appointed initially for five years and will have a minimum of five years' right of audience in any part of the Supreme Court, or all proceedings in County Courts or Magistrates' courts. These are the same qualifications as those of a District judge. They retire at the age of 65.

All judges, when they are sworn in, must take two oaths/affirmations. The first is the oath of allegiance and the second the judicial oath; these are collectively referred to as the judicial oath.
