The international seminar is directed at all justice sector institutions as well as the training schools and units for the region’s public prosecution and public defense services.

These questions emerge from the observation that the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) has engaged in through its work on the various institutions that engage in judicial training. The first judicial academies were created in the 1980s, and many of them continue to redesign their structures, functions and spheres of action. Given the scenario that is still evolving, there is a need to hold a meeting to exchange ideas and engage in reflection. In view of this, JSCA and the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights of Argentina will hold the international seminar “Judicial Training in Latin America” in Buenos Aires on Wednesday, August 16.
