New Perspectives on Courtroom Leadership 2020

The National Judicial College of Australia has developed a two-day program to promote judicial leadership in the Courtroom.

The program will enable participants to:

  • Understand how their judicial role may be conceptualised as one of leadership in the courtroom;
  • Enhance their existing judicial skills, making them more effective leaders within the courtroom;
  • Acquire new skills for leadership within the courtroom;
  • Acquire greater confidence in their ability to manage the courtroom; and;
  • Become more aware of their personal resources for managing the unexpected.

It will be of particular benefit to judges who wish to enhance their leadership skills, as well as those who wish to obtain a deeper understanding of courtroom dynamics, thereby enhancing their in-court skills.
