The Papua New Guinea Centre for Judicial Excellence (PngCJE) was established in 2010 under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) entered into between the Chief Justice, Chief Magistrate and the Secretary for the Department of Justice and Attorney General. Its aim is for PngCJE to deliver structured training programs for Judges, Magistrates, Court officers and other officers of the Law and Justice Sector (LJS) agencies that play a part in the Court process.

Chief Justice and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the PngCJE Sir Salamo Injia, Kt., GCL has been a strong proponent of judicial education locally and regionally and has provided leadership in this area. The PngCJE is headed by Executive Director Mr John Carey who reports to the Chief Justice and Chairman of the Board, Sir Salamo Injia, Kt., GCL and the Board of Directors. The PngCJE conducts and/or coordinates judicial education and training in Papua New Guinea and has three key objectives. They are:
