Judicial Support

P.R.I.M.E. Finance and Experts from its Panel have conducted 22 bespoke judicial training programmes in twelve jurisdictions on five continents.

P.R.I.M.E. Finance's core aim is to promote the rule of law and help resolve disputes concerning complex financial transactions. One of the ways it does this is with its extensive judicial training programme. The enthusiasm with which judges have taken to P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s programmes speaks to an important, previously unmet need.

P.R.I.M.E. Finance's judicial training programme seeks to give judges a greater knowledge of complex financial products and related areas so that they have the tools they need to render effective decisions. P.R.I.M.E. Finance is increasingly recognized as being unique in offering the specialised information that judges need to better assess the merits of the complex financial disputes which they are being asked to adjudicate, including the often differing opinions expressed by expert witnesses in judicial proceedings. P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s independent status frees judges from conflict of interest concerns when seeking explanations of complex financial products and transactions. For many of these judges, P.R.I.M.E. Finance’s efforts are their first exposure to training in derivatives and the complex agreements which document these transactions.

In 2020, P.R.I.M.E. Finance won the prestigious Halsbury Rule of Law Award in recognistion of the success of its judicial training programme. Judges of the Award praised the important role played by P.R.I.M.E. Finance in ensuring and supporting the independence and expertise of the judiciary. For more information, click here.

See below for an overview of the judicial support and training activities carried out by P.R.I.M.E. Finance. Several of these programmes took place with the support of, and under the auspices of, the International Bar Association (IBA) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
