Courses
JIFA offers a number of certified 5 day courses including core skills for Judicial Officers, an Introduction to Human Rights for Judicial Officers and specialist Human Rights Course for Judicial Officers

The Judicial Institute for Africa (JIFA) is based at the University of Cape Town and is a partnership between the Democratic Governance and Rights Unit (DGRU) and the Southern African Chief Justices Forum (SACJF)

JIFA complements the work being done by domestic judicial institutes in Africa where they exist and offers opportunities for judges from jurisdictions where there are no judicial institutes to participate in courses for professional development.

We currently have a number of courses on offer and can also design and present bespoke courses on request.

We are distinct from other training institutes on the continent, in that we offer a bouquet of ongoing resources and support to judges once training has been completed.  

As well as offering University of Cape Town certified short courses, we publish a weekly newsletter curated by well-known legal journalist Carmel Rickard

JIFA is a member of the Global Judicial Integrity Network (GJIN).
