Webinar “Collegial Judicial Decision Making”


July 13, 2021, 16:00

The National School of Judges, with assistance from the USAID New Justice Program and in cooperation with the National Judicial College, Reno, USA, offers a series of open webinars on various topics for judges, judicial clerks, and court staff.

The next webinar in this series – “Collegial Judicial Decision Making.”

Collegial decision-making can be a challenging process as it aims to balance different perspectives of the member of the judicial panel to reach a wise decision. This course will familiarize judges with the psychology of collegial decision-making, the factors that may promote or undermine collegiality, and the use of collegiality as an effective instrument to bring greater value to justice.

After this 120-minute webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Identify factors that promote or undermine collegiality;
  • Examine the use of dissenting opinions;
  • Use collegiality as an effective instrument to bring different perspectives of judges (members of the panel) to reach balanced decisions;
  • Write and communicate collegial decisions more clearly.

Working language: English. Simultaneous translation into Ukrainian will be provided.

The webinar will be conducted on the Zoom platform. You can join the meeting at this link.
