Background

The training of the professional staff in the justice sector is regulated ad-hoc and it is not uniform at different organisations of the sector. Employees do not have sufficient information about training offer and the management of courts and state prosecutions do not have any overview about the state of knowledge of their subordinates. A structure of training judges and state prosecutors is already in place, it is necessary to cover also the training of other professional staff in the judiciary sector.
