As part of the creation of a pool of trainers at the Palestinian Judicial Council (PJI) composed of judges from the High Judicial Council, nine Palestinian judges have been sent by the PJI with the help of the EU police mission for the Palestinian Territories (EUPOL COPPS) to Romania to finalise the Trainer of Trainer programme in order to become trainer for other judges and possibly prosecutors.
The Trainer of Trainer programme is a 60- hour long programme, divided into three components.  During the five-day trip, the nine judges participated in the third and final component of the training, conducted by the Romanian National Institute of Magistracy (NIM) in Bucharest, Romania. The previous modules have been conducted by the NIM in Palestine. 
With the creation of a pool of trainers at the PJI the sustainability of initial and continuous training of judges shall be ensured. The support of EUPOL COPPS aims at empowering the Palestinian justice sector institutions to effectively perform assigned roles and responsibilities.
