This term is used to unify two categories of legal professional, both of which require similar qualifications and experience of the post-holder. These are what used to be known as a 'stipendiary Magistrate', and a Registrar of the court. Where the distinction is significant, it is conventional to write 'District Judge (magistrates' court)' for the former.
