Company Law Course for Judges Completed with PROLoG's Support

05 June 2018 Trainings for judges in Company Law

USAID/PROLoG, in cooperation with the High School of Justice (HSoJ) and the German International Development Agency (GIZ), organized three trainings on Corporate Law and Governance in Georgia and the EU in April, May and June 2018. The course was developed with the support of international and local experts retained by PROLoG and GIZ last year, and then piloted with a team of judge-trainers. This round of trainings was conducted independently by Ketevan Meskhishvili, a judge-trainer.

The topics covered during the trainings were: EU company law and directives, formation of a company and related legal disputes in Georgia and Europe; financial structure of companies, managers’ and shareholders’ rights and duties, European principles of capital maintenance, and the specific issues of closed corporations. When Georgia’s new Company Law, is adopted, courts will have to apply new legal concepts and interpret the law in accordance with the EU directives. The outcome of this unique training program will be the increased expertise of judges when deciding complex company law cases.

The participants received copies of the draft Law of Georgia on Entrepreneurs and the Regulatory Impact Assessment Report on the draft Law, which were officially presented to the public on May 2, in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice.

PROLoG intends to continue its support to the HSoJ and will have judge-trainers provide the company law course trainings for judicial assistants.
