The object of the Academy is to provide effective training to the serving Judicial officers and Induction training to the newly recruits so as to keep them in pace with the emerging legal, social and technological trend.
Recognition of the need for continuing education by the judiciary as a profession – comprises three principal components, being:
New judge transition – to train and educate new appointees to assume office, to facilitate the transition from advocate to adjudicator, and to bridge the gap between inexperience and experience;
