This series of three modules will give a deep understanding of the origins, purpose, and content of the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct and their relevance and application to the work and life of a judge. It provides an increased capacity to recognize when judicial conduct and ethics issues come into play, both within and outside the workplace, and a range of methods to help you deal with any associated challenges.
The course focuses on the six core values recognized in the Bangalore Principles . The modules provide a great deal of analytical detail regarding each Bangalore Principle and are highly interactive, allowing the users to test their knowledge and learning at every stage of the course. In addition to the core principles, the modules also cover the impact of emerging issues for members of the judiciary, such as; social media on the work of the judge, unconscious biases, and gender-related integrity issues. There are detailed case studies inserted throughout the modules with indicative model answers to illustrate the application of the Principles.
