The AJM, an association of young judges, was set up in the aftermath of the famous “Outreau Affair” to give young judges a much-needed collective voice. With a role complementary to those of the existing trade unions and professional associations, the AJM has enabled newly qualified judges leaving the ENM (National School for the Judiciary) to pool their energy and share their fresh vision of the judicial institution and their determination to change professional practices without waiting for resources or reforms to be bestowed from above. It has already demonstrated that it has the ability to push at boundaries, question its own role and inject a dose of modernity into the forms of mobilisation and communication used. Firmly focused on civil society, the people who come into contact with the justice system and the notion of quality of service, it is contributing to the constant construction of the independence of its members.
