District Judge Richard King


Magisterial District Judge Richard King has been designated as Chair of the Minor Judiciary Education Board.

The Pennsylvania Constitution requires magisterial district judges be members of the bar of the Supreme Court or, before taking office, complete a course and pass an examination in the duties of their respective offices. It is the responsibility of the Minor Judiciary Education Board (MJEB) to instruct and certify individuals wishing to become magisterial district judges or Arraignment Court magistrates.

The board approves the curriculum, appoints and evaluates instructors, establishes course content, reviews all tests, and issues certificates to successful program participants.

In addition, the board conducts continuing education training for magisterial district judges, Senior magisterial district judges, Arraignment Court magistrates and for those individuals who wish to maintain a current certification in one or more of these areas.

It also conducts a one-week practicum, or orientation course, for newly elected or appointed magisterial district judges.
