Cultivation of Personnel
Training Judicial Professionals to Increase Competencies
To meet the operational needs of the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and its entities, we collaborate with a diverse set of training organizations to deploy pre-service and in-service professional training, designed to enhance our manpower continuing education, gain new knowledge, advance personal development, as well as strengthening and increasing our civil servants’ professional capabilities, leadership and management competencies.
Academy for the Judiciary, Ministry of Justice
The Academy for the Judiciary, Ministry of Justice, serves to cultivate Taiwan’s judicial officials including judges, prosecutors, prosecutors’ investigators, and clerks, who deploy to the Academy to complete pre-job and in-service professional training. The Academy’s duties include execution of education programs for admitted judges and prosecutors who have passed the National Examination, and training for the qualified officials under the MOJ; training for judicial personnel of MOJ; training for other persons besides the aforementioned two categories as approved by MOJ; and research, analysis and study on national criminology issues and criminal policy.
Among these, the core responsibility lies in providing the admitted judicial officials with pre-job professional education. The Academy aims to prepare judicial officials cohorts with the core constitutional precepts of democracy, liberty, rule of law, and human rights, to ensure professionalism, humane values, broad visions, ethics and morals, a sense of responsibility and mission, through planning and delivery of a two year judiciary officer training program. The learning delivery is provided through both intensive on-campus courses as well as practical training internships at judiciary bodies. The on-campus classwork portion includes courses in the law, adjunctive elective courses, and required general courses, which rely primarily on the case study method of practical learning. During the Court and Prosecutorial internships’ phase, the objective is to integrate students theoretical learning with judicial praxis. Each cohort is assigned exemplary experienced judges and prosecutors to serve as course advisers providing students with guidance for both their studies and mental preparation.
After the organizational restructuring in 2013, the Academy’s functions have expanded to in-service training of prosecutors in the fields of finance, healthcare, building projects, transportation safety, food safety, environmental protection, criminal forensics, cybercrime, trade secrets, government procurement and contracting, lay judge system, and foreign languages. We have also established a videoconferencing system and cloud classrooms, for real-time interactive learning, offering prosecutors (and prosecutorial clerks) unable to attend seminars in person the opportunity to attend synchronous courses with a computer, smartphone or PAD, we have also established “local cohort” in-service courses to save prosecutors time from traveling to courses, to reduce the burden on prosecutors from travel times, and strengthen their learning efficacy. Moreover, an e-learning program “Digital Online Course Learning System” has been designed specifically for prosecutors, which invites experts, academics and experienced practitioners to record the program digital classes, it is available on the Academy’s official website for prosecutors (and prosecutors’ investigators), to attend.
On July 1, 2013, the Academy launched the “Crime Prevention Research Center”, to serve as the nation’s criminal public policy think tank, and advance scholarship and efficacy in crime prevention. To further advance domestic and international criminological studies, in addition to existing manpower resources, the Center also reaches out to academia and practitioners to serve as members on the Consulting Committee and Research Committee. The Center aspires to pursue comprehensive studies of the sociology of crime to inform the government’s long-term criminal public policy planning.
