Annual Trial Advocacy Competition Held for Students

27 June 2018 Participating teams, judges of the competition and honored guests

On June 23-24, under the framework of its USAID-funded EWMI/PROLoG grant, Free University Tbilisi organized the National Trial Advocacy Competition for students. This was the seventh year the competition has been held in Georgia. The competition uses a mock trial format, which allows students to play the roles of prosecutor and defense attorney in a hypothetical criminal trial and helps students learn the art of case preparation and courtroom advocacy. 

This year teams from Georgian National University, Tbilisi Open University, Free University of Tbilisi, Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani Teaching University, Technical University of Georgia, Ilia State University, and two regional universities, Akaki Tsereteli State University (Kutaisi) and Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University, competed for the title of national champion. The competition was judged by representatives from the Prosecutor’s Office of Georgia, practicing lawyers, and judges from the Tbilisi City Court. The teams from Georgian Technical University and Ilia State University competed against each other in the finals, with the team from Georgian Technical University being declared national champion. The award ceremony was attended by U.S. Mission to Georgia Chargé d’Affaires Elizabeth Rood, Deputy Chairperson of the Supreme Court Vasil Roinishvili and others, who congratulated winning teams and encouraged students to participate in similar activities.
