In partnership with the Dutch courts of law and public prosecutor’s offices, SSR trains law graduates as judges and public prosecutors. These initial training programmes have undergone  major changes, and SSR has redesigned the judge programme. The Public Prosecution Service has taken the initiative to modify the public prosecutor programme itself, with SSR acting as a consultant.
The first candidates started the new courses in January 2014. Alongside the new programme, SSR will also continue to offer the established course for candidates who have already begun the programme; they will complete the course in line with the ‘old’ structure. The new public prosecutor programme started in April 2014.
