This international conference will bring together Judges and other leaders in judicial education from around the world to discuss and exchange perspectives and experiences on a wide range of issues touching on the design and delivery of judicial education, as well as the effective performance of judicial educational organizations.. In developing the theme of this conference, the organizers have chosen a range of topics beginning with a global perspective given by a panel of international chief justices and continuing with specific topics intended to address the issues facing judicial training organizations to-day.. Specific issues include: starting a judicial training organization; methods of educating newly-appointed judges; designing a judicial education curriculum; developing a skilled judicial faculty; and integrating substantive law, skills development and social context.. One focus will be the use of technology and electronic learning in judicial education.. Another will be teaching the craft and skills of being a judge.. The rule of law requires the judiciary to be independent, but it also requires it to be accountable.. The conference will consider how to teach such difficult issues as ethics, tolerance and the accommodation of diversity.. At each stage, the conference will provide information and instruction to meet the needs of new judicial training organizations and those that are more advanced.. Papers of no more than 20 pages are requested for distribution to faculty before the conference and will be published with permission of the authors on the website and in the library of IOJT following the conference..
