The Academy employs all the standard techniques for imparting training, which include class room lectures by Judges, jurists and scholars, supplemented by panel discussions and case studies of important judgments of the superior courts, involving issues both pertaining to substantive and procedural law.
Syndicate discussions also form part of the training methodology. It aims at providing an opportunity to the participants to interact and exchange their knowledge and experience with one another; which helps in analysing and articulation of current juridical issues. Participants are divided into a number of groups. One of the participants is designated as Chairman who prepares a syndicate report with the help of others and the report is presented in the plenary session held at the end of the course.
Arrangement has also been made to impart practical training to the participants along with class-room lectures, panel discussions and workshops. The trainees are required to perform as judges in a model court programme. Local lawyers are requested to visit the Academy and assist in making arguments in these programmes. The judges who act as Presiding officers in the programme, write judgments which are discussed with the course participants. This programme has tremendously contributed towards enhancing confidence of the trainee judges, including their grasp over practical issues. An audio-visual equipment is used in the model court programme by recording the whole exercise which is displayed subsequently for identification of different aspects , necessary for improving the efficiency of the participants.
