Judicial Exam with Updated Methodology Successfully Completed

30 July 2018 Judicial Exam with Updated Methodology Successfully Completed

On July 28, the High Council of Justice successfully completed the two rounds of Judicial Examination, pursuant to which new judicial listeners will be selected to study at the High School of Justice. This Judicial Examination took place almost three years after the last judicial examination in 2015.

This judicial examination was the first judicial exam organized based on updated rules and methodology for judicial examination, as well as new examination software. A series of USAID/PROLoG-supported trainings and workshops for the Judicial Examination Experts (test writers and evaluators) were conducted starting in December 2017, in cooperation with the National Assessment and Examinations Center, a national organization with outstanding expertise in test development and teaching, as well as unique experience in conducting large scale examinations and test administration.

As a result of USAID’s support, the judicial examination is now entirely electronic. Participants both register for the exam and respond to exam questions though Judicial Evaluation and Examination Software that was initially developed by USAID/JILEP and recently upgraded by USAID/PROLoG.

Two hundred and thirty-three applicants registered for judicial examination, only 73 of whom succeeded to the second stage. Fifty-two candidates successfully completed both stages (35 with criminal law specialization, 16 with civil/administrative specialization, and one with general specialization). The successful examinees should now apply to the High School of Justice to become Justice Listeners, the final stage before applying to become judges.

USAID/PROLoG continues its institutional support to the High Council of Justice of Georgia.
