AIJA Education Program
The AIJA has held regular conferences, seminars, workshops and orations on topics relating to judicial and court administration since 1987. The events held each year are determined by the AIJA Education Committee.
All AIJA events are on topical issues of interest to judicial officers, court administrators, legal practitioners, policy makers, academics and other professionals working in the justice system. They present important opportunities for delegates to discuss key issues of concern to judicial and court administration and to improve the delivery of and access to justice for the community.

Upcoming Online Conference with Law Society of New South Wales
"In mid-March 2020 Australia and New Zealand began going into lockdown. The courts, however, could not. The change to remote, audio-visual hearings of all cases has been a technological, psychological and personal challenge for everyone involved in legal proceedings. It has had to ensure that the new medium for hearings conforms with the principle of open justice. As we look to the other side, what does the future hold for justice in a viral world?" - The Hon Justice Steven Rares, AIJA President.
Join us in partnership with the Law Society of New South Wales for five weekly online sessions every Wednesday from 26 August 2020 - 30 September 2020 as we explore how everyone has adapted, how we have been affected both professionally and emotionally, what we can do better and what changes will come out of this in the long term.
