Enrolment Process


The Institute for Judicial and Legal Studies endeavours to devise, organise and conduct Continuing Professional Development Programmes for each of the three branches of the legal profession so as to broaden the knowledge of law practitioners and legal officers, keep them abreast of developments in the law field, encourage them to share experiences and enhance their professional skills.

A Continuing Professional Development Programme may take the form of lectures, workshops or seminars.

Every legal practitioner and legal officer is bound to participate in a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme organised by the Institute for Judicial and Legal Studies for a period of at least 12 hours per year.

The Institute started operating from 03 September 2012 and about more than 60 courses have been delivered in the first academic year September 2012-August 2013.

Law practitioners may consult the list of CPD courses organised by the Institute and register for booking their seats in advance. Application Forms for the CPD courses may be downloaded on the link and submitted online via email or hard copy may be submitted to the seat of the IJLS which is based on Level 7, Happy World House, Port Louis.

Duly filled Application Forms should be submitted at least one day before the date of the course for each course separately.

Selection of participants to the CPD courses is made on a ‘first come first serve’ basis and is dependent on the seat availability. Consideration is given only to members who have paid their yearly fees to the Institute as prescribed by the law.
