"Challenges that are placed before the judiciary in the process of European integration, first of all, the necessity of harmonizing domestic legislation with EU law and generally accepted standards, the introduction of new institutes and their application in practice, especially motivate the Judicial Academy to constantly improve its work and introduce modern learning methods.
Efficient, professional and transparent judiciary are recognized as basic values to which we strive as a society. The importance that is given to quality, professional approach and integrity on this path determine the work of the Judicial Academy.
The Judicial Academy contributes to improving the credibility of the judicial system as a whole. By working together, we build a professional, independent and impartial judiciary, which is efficient in its actions and responsible in its work, and for which we all stand."
