The Kerala Judicial Academy is established by the High Court of Kerala. It is one of the pioneer institutions in the country for judicial education and legal research. The Academy has set the platform for various programmes. They include the mandatory induction training for munsiff-magistrates, orientation programme for direct recruit district judges and in-service programmes for serving judicial officers. Continuing judicial education plays a vital role in helping the district judiciary to share their experiences, gain knowledge and update and sensitise themselves to the fast-changing social needs. Training is imparted in an organised and systematic manner to enhance the efficiency of the justice delivery system.
With the introduction of new technologies as well as the changes in law, judges may be confronted with multiple challenges in court management, litigational efficiency, judicial balance in the conduct of trials et cetera. Our endeavour is to ensure investment in updating knowledge and skills as well as improving efficiency in the justice delivery system. Such investment will repay in the delivery of justice and efficiency of judicial administration.
