ABOUT THE COURSETraining has always been used for equipping persons with the expertise necessary for performance of tasks. Training is now an accepted tool for development of human resource in an organisation. Necessity for training of the lawyers is essential.
Enhancing unimpeded access to justice and dispensing quality and speedy justice through accountability, transparency and fairness have continued to be the main and the core objectives of the judiciary. Legal and judicial reforms, over the past years also included the enactment and amendment of many laws. Harmonizing these laws for internal consistency, coherence or adapting these laws to cater to the changing times and contemporary need of the society continues to be the challenges of the day. The judges have to deal with other persons-the litigants, accused,witnesses, lawyers and others including the member of the staff. How to deal with them to optimise the level of performance and reaching a just decision with least harassment to the persons involved can only be done if the human skills are sharpened. They have to be introduced to the principles of interpersonalbehaviour, trained to behave in a manner as would inculcate faith in them so that they can elicit information needed from the witnesses and understand the social context of the acts. To effectively manage the office they have to be exposed to the qualities of leadership amongst other behavioural input.This is the raison d’etre for this course.
