On behalf of the newly formed executive committee, President Uzma Shukrana expressed her hope to work sincerely in coordination with the Bangladesh Judicial Service Association, the central body of judges, to ensure justice for the people.
It is noted that since the separation of the judiciary, the process of appointment of judges has been done through Bangladesh Judicial Service Commission (BJSC) instead of Public Service Commission.
Since the 18th BCS, the judges have gradually come under the BJSC. At present, the judges are called BJS cadre instead of BCS cadre. Judges of the 8th BJS joined as judges in 2015 and are employed in different districts of the country.
