                As part of efforts to strengthen the Judicial Service of Ghana, the National Judicial Institute of Canada, is to organise the last session of the two year training programme for the staff of the judicial service of Ghana.

The programme which is being done through the Judicial Training Institute (JTI), aims at improving and up-grading the skills and knowledge of judges as well as build on their capacity.

Speaking at a courtesy call on the Chief Justice of Ghana, Mrs Georgina Theodora Woode, yesterday, the Executive Director of the National Judicial Institute of Canada, Hon Justice Brian Lennox, stated that the programme would motivate the judicial system to further lead the way in the development and implementation of national standards for the judiciary.

He also stressed on the need to continue the co-operation between the Canadian Judicial Institute and the Judicial Service of Ghana, adding that he looked forward to working hand in hand with the service to assist it to meet its enormous challenges.

Justice Brian Lennox congratulated Chief Justice Woode on her appointment as Chief Justice of Ghana and commended her for her perseverance and dedication to equality and fairness to the system of justice.

Chief Justice Mrs Georgina Theodora Woode, in her remarks, recognised the co-operation and support of the Canadian judiciary and appealed for continued co-operation. Please click here to view photos
