Justice Chrissa Loukas-Karlsson of the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory and Deputy President Daniel O'Connor of the Industrial Court of Queensland paid a visit to the Academy for the Judiciary on September 21, 2023.

Justice Loukas-Karlsson has served as a barrister, a public defender, an acting Crown Prosecutor, and an acting District Court Prosecutor before officially taking her Oath of Office as a judge on March 26, 2018. Deputy President Daniel O'Connor, on the other hand, has had a long and distinguished career as a judge, with over 20 years of experience primarily handling civil cases. Both Justice Loukas-Karlsson and Deputy President Daniel O'Connor visited Taiwan from September 16 to September 21 this year to participate in the 65th Annual Meeting and 70th Anniversary of the International Association of Judges. Following the conclusion of the Annual Meeting, they visited our Academy.

President Li-Ling KER first introduced the history of our Academy in the History Room, following which the honored guests were received in the reception lounge for tea and a presentation. During the meeting, President KER provided an overview of our country's judicial officer training system, and both sides exchanged experiences and engaged in discussions on various topics, including the workload of judges, the shortage of judicial manpower, judges’ overwork, regulations on judges' use of social networks, and motivations for becoming a judicial officer. The exchange of ideas was fruitful. Subsequently, Justice Loukas-Karlsson and Deputy President Daniel O'Connor greeted the trainees of the 64th Judicial Officer Class in a classroom. President KER then took them visiting a moot court and the library. Finally, they took a group photo in front of our institution's emblem.

Both Justice Loukas-Karlsson and Deputy President Daniel O'Connor expressed their deep appreciation for Taiwan's judicial officer training system and mentorship program. Justice Loukas-Karlsson also shared her fondness for the design of our Academy's emblem. Both judges also mentioned that during their time in Taiwan, they were profoundly touched by the warmth and hospitality of the Taiwanese people.

Our Academy looks forward to enhancing the quality, effectiveness, and international visibility of judicial education and training in our country through exchanges with judicial institutions and personnel from various countries around the world.
