This residential 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 judges with their transition to judicial office by facilitating the development and refinement of the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for effective judging.
The program will offer insights into the role and responsibilities of a member of the judiciary, provide the opportunity for new appointees to benefit from the knowledge and experience of senior judges who attend the program as speakers, and allow an exchange of ideas and experiences among participants.
Many of the sessions are interactive, relying on discussion by participants and using practically based case scenarios.
