Report No. 117
6. Selecting competent faculty for manning training course in the academy is of vital importance. Ordinarily, every member of the society comes directly or indirectly in contact with the judiciary. Expectation from the judiciary by the society is very high. An honest, intelligent and upright judge inspires so much confidence in the society that any investment in producing such judges should not be viewed from the standpoint of cost benefit syndrome. To train and produce such judges, the academy will have to assemble highly qualified members of the faculty.
It can be broadly indicated here that they must be drawn from outstanding legal academics, justices of the High Court and Supreme Court, senior and outstanding members of the Bar, and even leading citizens rendering social service though not equipped by any formal legal knowledge. The last category would draw up a picture of a judge in the society and what the society expects of him. The authorities in charge of the Academy and the National Judicial Service Commission will draw up a detailed requirement of the members of the faculty and select the same.
