In-service Trainings for Sitting Judges

With the view of professional development of sitting judges, the High School of Justice provides in-service trainings for judges throughout the whole year.  In-service Training Program for Judges is developed for each coming year during October-November of the current year and includes educational activities to be implemented by the High School of Justice using its own resources as well as in cooperation with foreign and international organizations.

When developing the In-service Training Program of Sitting Judges, the High School of Justice uses a complex method, which includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Analysis of the needs of the courts;
  • Recommendations of the superior courts;
  • Recommendations of the High Council of Justice;
  • Analysis of  the case law of the European Court of Human Rights;
  • Recommendations of the Council of Teachers of the School;
  • Analysis of obligations taken by the Government of Georgia;
  • Recommendations of foreign and international organizations;
  • Current novelties and trends in the field of judicial training in developed countries.

Within the framework of the In-service Training Program of Sitting Judges, teaching activities are conducted by using training, workshop, round table, conference and other tested formats.

On the basis of legislative amendments and needs of the courts, the High School of Justice regularly modifies/updates the In-service Training Program of Sitting Judges throughout the year.
