This program, offered jointly by the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice and the National Judicial Institute, is designed so that new judges may participate in sessions that are most relevant to them topically. Throughout the week, the seminar subjects are divided between those that apply to Common Law jurisdictions, those that apply to Civil Law jurisdictions, or both. Where Common Law and Civil Law jurisdictions overlap, the groups have been combined and translation services will be provided.
