Designed for recent appointees, this interactive and experiential program will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage the personal challenges of transitioning to the judicial role, and to approach your judicial career with optimism and confidence.

We will discuss the known pressure-points in the work, and also the opportunities for growth and fulfilment. You will leave the program with a personal wellbeing plan for your judicial career ahead.  

Feedback from previous years:

“I enjoyed the whole program – it left me wanting more.  I don’t know where the day went”

“This is a great program, that would be wonderful to keep going throughout a judicial career”

“Very useful program – should be compulsory for new appointees”

“It was an outstanding program which I found really useful. I’m tremendously grateful to you for running it, and very much appreciate being able to be a part of it”

This full day program is open to judicial officers only. Priority will be given to judicial officers appointed since January 2019.
