The New South Wales public expects judicial officers to be impartial, independent and perform to the highest professional standard. Judicial officers come to their role as highly skilled professionals so our program is designed to assist in their transition to the role as an impartial adjudicator. From there, we aim to continuously renew judicial skills and provide information about changes to the law, court procedure and community values.
Our judicial education program contributes to a better informed and more professional judiciary by:
- promoting high standards of judicial performance
- assisting in the development of appropriate judicial skills and values
- keeping judicial officers up-to-date with current legal developments and emerging trends.
The Commission offers an extensive education program for judicial officers, ranging from annual conferences, induction and orientation courses for new appointees to specialist conferences, seminars and webinars on specific aspects of law, procedure, judicial skills and social context issues. The programs are designed to keep judicial officers up-to-date with current developments and emerging trends. The Commission aims to continuously renew judicial skills and provide information about changes to the law, court procedure and community values.
