The College of Justice provides instruction on both professional higher education level and vocational education level to students who hold a secondary school diploma and are interested in law, justice and safety of the society.
In 1992, when the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences was established, also a college called the College of Corrections was opened. That college was renamed in 2004 and became the College of Justice. Since the very beginning, the speciality of corrections has been taught at the college. The speciality of prison guards was previously taught in a number of different schools, but since the academic year of 2005/2006 it has been taught only at the College of Justice.
