NCJA programs are developed using adult learning principles; this means the programs are highly interactive and engaging for participants. Programs are designed to provide participants with practical skills and knowledge and this is achieved through structured small group discussion and hands-on practical exercises relevant to the program topics. With the focus being on interactive learning rather than lectures this means that most College programs are suitable for 25 to 30 participants.
NJCA programs such as the National Judicial Orientation Program and the National Magistrates Orientation Program are fixture’s in the country’s judicial education calendar and considered essential introductions for newly appointed judicial officers.
The College also offers a limited number of larger conferences. These cater for a multi-disciplinary audience of judicial officers, academics, government officers, legal practitioners and others with an interest in learning about the latest research and developments in fields relevant to the work of the courts.
