Dates: 19 – 23 October 2015
Tuition fees: £1,975 (exc. VAT)
About the workshop
Corruption has been described as the most unjust, cruel and burdensome of taxes. Within legal systems it negates judicial independence and destroys faith in the institutions of government. It is especially hard to challenge as, when corruption is widespread, the innocent can often be faced with false allegations.
The need for training in addressing issues of ethics and corruption has been frequently identified as a core requirement of good governance. This workshop is designed to address the specific training needs within judicial systems for judges, magistrates and court administrators.
An important aspect of this professional development workshop is our offer of follow up and support to you in your work after your return to your home country.
The main aims of the workshop are to help you to:
- Identify and be alert to ethical and corruption issues within judicial systems
- Establish, promote and lead training programmes, and specifically anti-corruption programmes, for judicial officers and court administrators
- Become pathfinders in fighting corruption and unethical behaviour in the judicial system of your country’s public service.

This one-week workshop is designed for:
- Magistrates and other judicial officers
- Court and judicial administrators
