Topics covered included the New Jury Law and its Effective Implementation, Execution and the Observance of the Rule of Law, Foundational Pillar of Human Rights and the Role of Judges.
Other topics are Judgment Writing and the Need for Judges to Take The Lead in The Fight Against Corruption.
The judges and magistrates were drawn from across the country to participate in the exercise.
The two-day training session kicked off Monday at a local business center in the Lakpazee community in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.
“Our job calls for training in the law because there are some contemporary laws and methods of litigations that we need to learn such as judgment writing,” Judge Roosevelt Willie, Resident Judge of Criminal Court “A” told a team of Judicial reporters.
The training is an initiative of the Judicial Institute in collaboration with the James A. A. Pierre Judicial Institute.
According to Judge Willie, the first training session was held in February in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.
