Legal Training

Legal training ensures that legal and judicial reforms contribute to changing the attitudes and behaviors of lawyers and citizens. For this reason, legal training should be an integral part of legal and judicial reform strategies that are anchored on the rule of law and reflect a country’s societal values. Legal education strengthens professionalism, builds public confidence, and facilitates consensus and momentum for further reforms. Legal education also improves the performance of legal professionals, enhances service quality and stimulates public respect. As a result, training programs should be designed not only to enhance performance but also to instill the values of impartiality, professionalism, competency, efficiency and public service.
