Tuesday 30th July 2024

Full Day EVENT | 9:00 AM-4:30 PM


Courtroom management is learned, not innate. Developing courtcraft skills will assist in establishing your own judicial practice and authority.  

Set in a courtroom, join experienced coaches as they share with you the fundamentals of courtcraft.  

Over the day, you will:  

  • enhance your verbal and non-verbal communication skills 
  • learn strategies for keeping calm in stressful situations  
  • reflect on how you want to be perceived in your courtroom 
  • put your new skills into practice 
  • receive feedback to develop your own personal style. 

Note: This program is open to judicial officers only.
