The NAWJN has organised several workshops and seminars for judges. Some of these were modelled on the IAWJ’s Jurisprudence of Equality (JEP) Project. The seminars were organised to teach members to achieve gender-sensitive judicial interpretations and applications of the provisions of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution (as amended) and other legislation.
