Pursuant to GDPKH, what needs to be conducted by KYRI to enhance judge capacities is the efforts to form character, attitude awareness, and motivation (affective aspect), and interest development and knowledge (cognitive aspect), and also skill (psychomotor aspect). GDPKH sets out the activities which must be performed, one of which was to carry out training on the Improvement of Judge Capacities.

In general, training need analysis has been carried out during the preparation of GDPKH, where an enhancement in the capacity of judges to be done has focused on two aspects: legal knowledge competency and commitment to KEPPH.

Legal Knowledge competency aspect comprises the principles of justice, law method, understanding laws and regulations which are relative new, mastery of law in the society life sector, and mastery in applying method and invention of law.
