More Details about this Workshop Series


Program Structure

Each of the 4 workshops will take place onsite at the CEELI Institute in Villa Grebovka, Prague, from Thursday evening to Saturday late afternoon. The teaching and learning methodology employed at the sessions will consist of mini-talks and lectures, group discussion, presentations, role play, and panels, along with ample time for informal networking opportunities. A central goal of our approach is to facilitate regional and international knowledge exchange. The workshop series will enable judges to develop, and export successful models for addressing issues related to judicial performance, ethics and independence.


The international faculty will include judges, academics, researchers, and other subject matter experts. We are particularly keen to hear from current CEE Judicial Network members who have subject matter expertise in any of the workshop topics (below) and would like to put themselves forward as faculty. Please send your details to Freda.grealy@ceeli.eu

Application Process & Who Should Attend

The workshops are open to judges from Central and Eastern Europe who are members of the the CEELI Institute’s Judicial Exchange Network or who wish to join. A registration form will be available for each workshop. Places are limited to 30 participants on each session – please note that we might proceed to a selection process if the demand exceeds the limited number of places available. The trainings will be accessible for those fluent in English and South-Slavic languages, with simultaneous translation provided.
