Proposal for Setting up an Academy for Training of Judicial Officers
It is absolutely Imperative for improving the quality and efficiency of the Judiciary to set up an Academy for training of Judicial Officers at an All-India level. The need for such an Academy was recognised at the Joint Conference of Chief Justices, Chief Ministers and Law Ministers held on 31gt August - 1st September, 1985 in New Delhi and a resolution almost to the same effect was passed. The resolution provided that the Academy should be set up by the Central Government with the Chief Justice of India as the Visitor and that the Academy should be under the supervision of a Governing body to be appointed in consultation with the Chief Justice of India. It is therefore proposed to set up such an Academy to be called 'National Academy for Training of Judicial Officers.
