In an attempt to improve judicial standards and enhance the skills and attitudes of judges, the law ministry has drafted a brief overview of legislative and policy initiatives taken in the recent past to be taught at judicial academies in 22 states. The government has written to these academies to upgrade their curriculum, reports The Times of India.

The draft prepared by the law ministry is an add-on to the curriculum being followed at these judicial academies and the government has requested them to follow these legislative changes and policy initiatives so that justice is delivered without delay.

To improve training of judges, the instructors will be first taught at the National Judicial Academy in Bhopal about amendments which are not being followed in the right spirit. Representatives of judicial academies of 22 states met in Bhopal on October 4-6 to improve training standards.

The target group included district judges/additional district judges and senior civil judges among others who will ensure that the legislative changes are followed while delivering justice.
