Jim Scholes

Jim Scholes practiced as a barrister in private practice before joining the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. In 2007 he was appointed Deputy Director and subsequently served as Acting Director of Public Prosecutions for Northern Ireland for two years prior to his retirement in 2012.

He currently sits as a Parole Commissioner and as a Civil Service Commissioner. In 1980 he was appointed Chair of the Friends of the Joss Cardwell Centre, a then newly formed voluntary group, and played significant role in resisting attempts to close the Centre, thereby allowing its ultimate incorporation into the Musgrave Park Regional Acquired Brain Injury Unit, which opened in 2006.
