Monday, September 01, 2003 - Judicial officers, Masters, Judges and Magistrates, are among some forty persons expected to benefit from a two-day Headnoting and Law Writing workshop slated for the 8th and 9th of September at the Windjammer Landing Resort. Targeted specifically at registrars and librarians of the court and members of the Bar Association from each of the member countries of the OECS, the workshop is geared at achieving proper record management and a standardized writing of head notes across the region.

Programme Director of the Judicial Education Institute of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, Lilith Dalphinis, says the upcoming workshop is just one of the many programmes by the Institute to enhance the efficiency of the judicial system:

“We recognize that the transmission of skills and knowledge is one of the most important mediums that we can use to ensure that the administration of justice is efficient, because members of the public often feel that cases take too long before they are heard”.

Headnotes are abstracts or summaries of judgements written at the top of each judgement and serves to facilitate research whether by electronic means or hardcopy. The workshop will sharpen the skills of judges in writing up these headnotes which will facilitate speedier and more efficient research.
The Judicial Education Institute is the education arm of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court’s effort to enhance the administration of justice through the training and education of judicial officers.
