  • The mission of any continuing judicial education is to improve the quality of judicial performance by helping judges to acquire the tools for professional competence. The concept of competence illuminates the issue of what makes a good judge. It includes mastery of theoretical knowledge, developing problem-solving capacity, cultivating collegiate identity, relating to allied professionals, conceptualising the judicial mission, maintaining an ethical practice and self-enhancement. At an operational level, the goals and objectives of judicial education are to meet the education, training, and development needs of judicial officers. These needs are defined through a variety of analysis techniques and then addressed through the provision of specific education services.
