This program has been developed for the Australian judiciary and is designed to enhance participants’ judgment writing skills through analysis, discussion and rewriting of judgments in small groups. The program is hands-on and where participants are assisted by professional writers and senior judges.
This five day program, previously called the Phoenix Magistrates Program, is open to magistrates only, providing an opportunity for professional development, reflection, workshops and to meet magistrates from other jurisdictions. It will have a strong emphasis on using the knowledge and skills of people who are familiar with the challenges inherent in the work of a magistrate.
This two and a half day residential program has been developed specifically for experienced (mid career) judges and magistrates. It will provide an opportunity for judicial officers to reflect and share with colleagues their approaches to their work through the exploration of contemporary themes. Further details will be available early in the new year.
