USAID/PROLoG Continues Support for Publication of Civil Code Commentary

24 July 2018 Presentation of the Second Volume of the Commentary on the Civil Code of Georgia

On July 20, USAID/PROLoG, in cooperation with the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), organized a presentation of the second volume of the Commentary on the Civil Code of Georgia. The Supreme Court of Georgia hosted the event. Nino Gvenetadze, Chief Justice of Georgia, introduced the event. She gave a very positive evaluation of the publication and said that both volumes are valuable sources for legal professionals. Her comments were followed by opening remarks from Giorgi Chkheidze, USAID/PROLoG Chief of Party, and Thomas Meyer, Program Manager at GIZ. Finally, Professor Lado Chanturia, Judge to the European Court of Human Rights in Respect of Georgia and the Editor in Chief of the Commentary, addressed the participants and introduced the concept of the Commentary and its structure. He thanked the authors for their high quality work. Judge Chanturia highlighted the importance of the Commentary and its role for the legal community and stressed the need for the publication of further commentaries.

Through the publication of six volumes, the Commentary will provide analysis and case citations related to the provisions of Georgia’s Civil Code, providing both judges and lawyers with an important tool to ensure the proper and uniform interpretation of the Civil Code’s provisions. The authors of the Commentary are renowned scholars and practicing lawyers, including former and acting judges.
