The National Judicial Orientation Program has been presented every year since 1994. The program has been developed by a steering committee of experienced judges and judicial education professionals drawn from courts and educational bodies throughout Australia. The primary objective of the program is to assist newly appointed judicial officers with their transition to judicial office by facilitating the development and refinement of the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for effective judging.
In partnership with the ANU College of Law, the National Judicial College of Australia will present the biennial Conference on 4 and 5 March 2017.
The theme of the conference is Brave New Worlds: Challenges for Evidence in the 21st Century. The conference will focus on emerging research and issues in the areas of evidence law, cybercrime and decision-making. Speakers include leading researchers, academics and judicial officers.
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 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.
