New programme to boost judicial diversity
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
Lawyers from under-represented groups will be better supported to become judges following the launch of a new online education programme today.
The Pre-Application Judicial Education (PAJE) programme will help lawyers develop their understanding of the role and skills required of a judge, before they apply. The programme will provide advice to applicants on how to prepare for the next step in their career as well covering a range of topics necessary to being a judge including judgecraft, ethics and resilience.
