Refresher Judgment Writing 2021

Please email the admin team at [email protected] to register for the program.


The Refresher Judgment Writing program is open to participants who have previously attended a Writing Better Judgments Program. This refresher program is designed to revitalise participants’ skills in writing judgments. Theory sessions include an overview of key topics such as the 5 C’s; issues based judgment structure; court practices that assist with judgment writing and managing a caseload and competing priorities.

This two day program will provide participants with a high level of interactivity including group workshops and individual feedback.

It is essential that participants have previously attended a Writing Better Judgments program.

This is a non-residential program; flights and accommodation are not included in the registration fee.


How is my participation confirmed?

There is a space on the registration form for you to note these requirements.

Do I pay for incidental expenditure at the hotel?
