Within its legal mandate, the Judicial Academy offers, apart from its regular course offerings, a set of training activities which have been grouped under the name of Extension Program. These activities, complementary to the regular course offerings, are implemented either to host relevant initiatives that stay outside the biannual planning which involves the regular program or to address emerging issues or themes in one year. Thus, the activities included in this program are intended to analyze current and relevant topics for the Judiciary, through lectures, workshops, courses or seminars.
As far as the material possibilities of execution permit, especially in terms of quota, these activities are also open to members of other institutions and the legal community.
In general, these activities are carried out in premises out of the Judicial Academy, mainly in the auditoriums of the courts of appeals, as well as in public services and universities, among others.
