About Us

The Latvian Judicial Training Centre (LJTC) is the only institution in Latvia to provide continuing education for judges and court employees. It does so with the aim of strengthening the lawful state and facilitating a uniform understanding of law within the joint European Union legal space. The main task of the LJTC is to provide quality continuing education and professional qualification-building measures (seminars, experience exchange trips, etc.) for professionals within the legal system, with special attention to subjects on and improvements to the quality of court judgments, as well as preparing professionals for quality work within the legal system of the European Union.

In February 2014, the LJTC received the LVS EN ISO 9001:2009 quality management system certificate from Bureau Veritas. The certificate is testimony to the result of the joint work of LJTC employees. It proves that we have worked effectively to develop, maintain and continually improve the quality management system and our teaching.

The LJTC also provides training for other legal professionals, including public prosecutors, attorneys, and the lawyers and employees of governmental bodies and municipal institutions.

The LJTC has been an active member of the European Judicial Training Network since 2004 and operates in the programme work group, with special attention to the preparation of lectures and seminars on administrative law at an EU level.
