ADR Training for Judges at FJA on Monday.

ISLAMABAD, February 14, 2011 (Balochistan Times): A one week training of trainers (ToT) on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for judiciary will kick off at the Federal Judicial Academy (FJA), Islamabad on Monday February 14. Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, Judge Supreme Court of Pakistan, will inaugurate this training course which is being organized with the collaboration of famous Gender Justice through Musalihat Anjuman Project (GJTMAP). It is a novel Project with the goal to assist women and other vulnerable sections of society in improving their conditions through safeguarding and promoting their rights and lawful entitlements for petty disputes and other matters, as per Rules of Business (RoBs) notified by Provincial Governments, considering that the institutional safeguards offered by the formal justice sector institutions have not been able to perform their role. Since Judges are frequently called upon to use ADR techniques in the cases to which they are assigned. However, these training programs provide them excellent opportunity for intellectualization and enhance knowledge about the ADR skills and techniques in vogue in various societies, communities and cultures. However, such trainings not only sharpen skills of judges but also update them with improved quality of ADR techniques, elucidated Hashim Abro, spokesman of the Academy. Experienced trainers of national and international repute including DG FJA, National Coordinator of the Project and others will impart training to trainee Judges, twenty two in number both male and female Senior Civil Judges, hailing from all four provincial High Courts in this week-long program, said Abro.
