Best Practices for Remote Judging – A New CEELI Online Course – Now Accepting Applications
Our recent engagement with contributors to both our webinar series and ‘CEELI talks’ podcast, as well as interventions from various European representative bodies for the judiciary have identified specific judicial training needs arising from the current pandemic crisis. Promoting uses of technology that enhance the justice system and enable more efficient, timely, and accessible justice for all is a key responsibility of any modern judiciary. However, technology must be introduced thoughtfully and carefully: encouraging the use of technology and online hearings whilst also providing that fair trial rights are met, and transparent open justice is observed for hearings is vital for rule of law and human rights.
As the long-term impact of COVID-19 is still unknown, international in-person meetings are likely to be limited for some time to come. The goal of this course is to create a blended learning approach that allows for some limited in-person activity in addition to a flexible, interactive online program that is manageable for members of the judiciary. The CEELI Online learning platform will be used to deliver an effective learning environment that maximizes the opportunities for members of the judiciary to connect and engage in peer to peer knowledge and information sharing.
The wide-ranging, regional, and international faculty will include judges, lawyers, academics, researchers, and leading voices from NGO and CSO organizations together with subject matter experts from European Institutions.
This course is open to judges from Central and Eastern Europe, places are limited. Interested judges are invited to complete the Application Form. For further information please contact Freda.email@example.com
