There is immense public interest in the administration of justice. Everyone has an opinion about court decisions and the work of the Public Prosecution Service. But the administration of justice is about more than just criminal law. Judges are also involved, for example, in separations, guardianships, disputes between neighbours, problems with councils or other levels of government, bankruptcies, administration or cybercrime.
Through lectures aimed at the general public, the Publieksacademie voor de Rechtspraak (Public Academy for Jurisprudence) seeks to satisfy this immense interest. Judges, public prosecutors, professors and other experts discuss legal topics that affect many people. The lectures are suitable for a wide audience and do not require knowledge of the law.
The Public Academy is a collaboration between the Court of the Northern Netherlands, the Faculty of Law at the University of Groningen, the Northern Netherlands Public Prosecution Service and the Dagblad van het Noorden newspaper.
