DGRU convenes and facilitates forums which allow judges from around the SADC region to share experiences and talk about jurisprudential issues with each other in a quiet, safe space. It provides an opportunity for judges to share experiences and learn from one another. Participants are selected by the Chief Justices of their home countries. Previous forums have been hosted in South Africa in 2013, in Namibia in 2015, in Malawi in 2016, and in Mozambique in 2018. The next forum is scheduled to take place in Zimbabwe in 2019.
