I would like to sincerely welcome you to the Judicial Studies Institute Website!
The Judicial Studies Institute (JSI) was created in 2004 through an administrative directive by the Hon. the Chief Justice of Uganda as a semi-autonomous body with a mandate to provide on the job for judicial and non-judicial staff of the Uganda Judiciary and upon request, the JSI can also provide training for stakeholders within the administration of justice not only in Uganda but also in the region and far beyond.
The JSI is guided by government training policies, rules and regulations beside its homegrown policies. The policy making body for the JSI is the Judicial Training Committee which is headed by a Justice of the Supreme Court.
Among functions of the Institute are;
- Teaching and Training
- Legal and Judicial Curriculum Development
- Law Reporting
- Legal and Judicial Research and Publications
- Specialized IT Training
- Fundraising, Linkages, Partnership and Networking with other Institutions especially in the administration of Justice to enhance its activities.
To ensure its effectiveness, the JSI has a core faculty made up of judicial officers, retired judges and specialized resource persons from outside the Judiciary who are committed and who steer its day to day activities.
The vision of the JSI is to become a leading provider of high quality training for excellence in the administration of Justice.
