USAID/PROLoG Supports Training for State-funded Legal Aid Lawyers on Involuntary Psychiatric Assistance

05 July 2018 Training for LAS Lawyers on Involuntary Psychiatric Assistance

On June 30-July 1, the USAID-funded PROLoG activity organized a training for 28 lawyers from the state-funded Legal Aid Service (LAS) on involuntary psychiatric assistance. The training of LAS lawyers on these issues was recommended by the Public Defender’s Office in 2017.

The topics covered during the trainings were: international and Georgian legislation on psychiatric assistance; psychiatric deficiencies; interrogation of psychiatrists; patient’s rights and placement in psychiatric institutions; and European Court of Human Rights decisions related to psychiatric assistance. The training was conducted by Tamar Khazhomia, judge of Tbilisi City Court’s Administrative Collegium, and two expert psychiatrists, Manana Eliashvili and Nana Zavradashvili. The training was very interactive. The participants had an opportunity to engage in active discussions with the experts.

PROLoG has been working with the LAS since 2015 to build up its institutional capacity and strengthen the quality of legal assistance provided by its lawyers to marginalized populations of Georgia. This training was implemented under the PROLoG component designed to improve the management of justice system institutions.
