They are ordinary citizens who are selected not because they have any legal training but because they have ''sound common sense" and understand their fellow human beings. They give up time voluntarily.
A small proportion of judges are not Magistrates. They are called "High Court Judges" and they deal with the most serious crimes, such as those for which the criminal might be sent
to prison for more than a year. High Court Judge unlike Magistrates, are paid salaries by the State and have considerable legal training.
