Phoenix Magistrates’ Program
The Phoenix program offers five days of professional development, reflection, interactive workshops, and the opportunity to meet Magistrates from other jurisdictions. The program has a strong emphasis on using the knowledge and skills of people who are familiar with the challenges inherent in the work of a magistrate – you and your peers along with expert subject matter presenters.
The subjects to be covered include:
- Judicial Conduct and Ethics
- Court Craft
- Judgment Writing
- Giving Oral Decisions
- Cultural Awareness
- Social Media
- Children as Witnesses
- Maintaining Physical Health
The program sessions will be held in conference facilities at the Sofitel Hotel Broadbeach and at the Southport Magistrates’ Court. Participants will attend dinners at restaurants in Broadbeach on two nights during the Program.
The registration fee of $ 2,835.00 covers venue and other costs associated with the presentation of the Program. The fee also covers morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday). The fee does not cover accommodation or travel to the Program.
