The INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY for JUDGES
The International Academy for Judges was established to support the professional development of the judiciary and to engage in research related to judging and the judiciary. The Academy is planning to create and develop a cadre of professional judges and scholars that will be able to systematically research and inform discourse on professional judging and produce scholarly and policy recommendations. By doing so, the Academy will respond to urgent needs at the intersection of legal practice and academic scholarship.
One of the main activities of the academy is an annual three-weeks workshop exclusively geared for judges from around the world in which three courses will be offered. The courses will be taught by top academics and judges, creating a forum in which the participating judges would be able to share their national experiences with fellow judges and the instructors. This would present a rare opportunity to get a taste of contemporary academic legal discourse and analysis. In addition a weekend workshop of international & national Judges will be offerd to the participants.
