President Truong Tan Sang emphasised the importance of judicial training reforms and the key role played by major law universities in this task at the seventh meeting of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform in Hanoi on October 16.

The committee’s members suggested mobilising sources in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City law universities so they can succeed in training well-qualified judicial officials for state agencies.

They also proposed adjusting goals, measures, training scales, teaching staff, content and methodology in the reform process of training officials in these sectors to ensure its feasibility, contributing to the success of judicial reform strategy.

Regarding the draft report submitted to the Political Bureau on allocating the training and recruitment tasks for judicial and legal officials, the members stressed the necessity to specifically assess the Judicial Institute’s training activities for judges, procurators and lawyers.

Forecasts on the recruitment needs of relevant agencies in this sector should be made, they said.

Sang, who is also Head of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform, highlighted the importance of raising the quality of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City law universities’ training activities, especially with regard to international law.

He also asked the two universities to update their teaching content, re-evaluate the quality of students and gauge the demands of judicial agencies to build suitable development strategies.

He said the strategy of judicial reform towards 2020 is consistent so that shortcomings can be repaired to meet changing situation.-VNA
