Express Interest

The National Judicial Institute (NJI) is proud to host the IOJT 2022 conference in concert with the International Organization for Judicial Training (IOJT).

NJI is a recognized world leader in the design and delivery of judicial education that integrates social context, substantive law, and skills development. Understanding social context—that is, the reality of the people we serve as judges—is vital to addressing social inequality and supporting those who are most vulnerable.

Indeed, the theme for IOJT 2022 is Effective Judicial Education: Understanding Vulnerable Populations. The conference will be an important avenue for collaboration and a learning exchange among judges and judicial trainers. Through such international collaboration we enhance our ability to confront common emerging issues.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ottawa for the IOJT 2022 Conference. See you in 2022.

About Ottawa

Canada’s capital is a city of a million residents, mixing cosmopolitan pleasures with small-town charm. Blessed with great urban neighbourhoods and surrounded by quaint villages, Ottawa has a lot to offer, including world-class museums and art galleries, diverse dining options, and a wide range of cultural events.

Visitors can meander along the historic Rideau Canal, and see some of Ottawa’s most picturesque views. The Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stretches from Ottawa’s downtown core to Lake Ontario.

You can also get your fill of culture by taking in a performance at the National Arts Centre or one of Ottawa’s many other artistic venues.

If you need a break from the city, nature is close at hand. A 20-minute drive will get you to Gatineau Park for some outdoor adventures.

Come and explore.
