The overall objective "Support to the Sustainability of the School of Magistrates of Albania" was to improve the efficiency of the judicial system by building the sustainability of the School of Magistrates of Albania, raising the quality of the initial and continuous training at the Albanian School of Magistrates and strengthening the managerial capacities of the Institution.

Its specific objective was to enable the School of Magistrates of Albania to become a self sustainable institution within the Albanian judiciary.

 

More precisely, the specific objectives were:

  • to enhance the management and operational capacity of the School of Magistrates, including its financial sustainability (mainly based on national resources and institutional development)
  • to improve the quality of initial and continuous training provided by the School of Magistrates
  • to achieve an increased level of competence of magistrates (judges and prosecutors).

The proposed Action rest on the implementation of the strategic plan defined by the School of Magistrates of Albania for the period 2006 – 2015.

The key target group were the School of Magistrates of Albania, its administrative and training staff, as well as its students.
