Brill is delighted to republish Educating Judges, the seminal monograph in the field of judicial education. First published in 1996, this book enables judicial educators to develop a more effective pedagogy by focuses on the distinctive learning needs, styles and preferences of judges, and deepening understanding of judges as learners. Much has happened since then. Over the past twenty 20 years, judicial education has grown very substantially around the world in both size and sophistication. It is now well established in many countries and is seen as an essential component of modern concepts of justice.
