National Magistrates Orientation Program Jan/Feb 2022
This five-day program is open to newly appointed magistrates only. The objective of the program is to provide program participants with the skills necessary to facilitate their transition to a role on the bench.
The program provides a balance of theory sessions (participants hear from subject matter experts as well as experienced judicial officers) and practical sessions involving facilitator led practice in managing the court room and delivering oral decisions in front of peers. Participants have an opportunity to reflect on their judicial role and function and meet with their peers from other jurisdictions.
