Summary
This state of knowledge paper examines judicial education in relation to domestic and family violence, including good practices and initiatives, why specific education, professional development and training are needed and the factors influencing judicial officer decision making. It further identifies a range of factors which intersect to contribute to improved judicial officer education in the area of domestic and family violence.
