Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
The National Judicial Orientation Program has been
presented every year since 1994. The program has been
developed by a steering committee of experienced judges,
drawn from courts throughout Australia.
The primary objective of the program is to assist newly appointed
judicial officers 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.
The program is a residential program starting Sunday evening with a
familiarisation session and ending on Friday. Prior to the
program participants are asked to read some pre-reading
material. Many of the sessions are interactive, relying on
discussion by participants of practical case scenarios.
