USAID/PROLoG Organizes Study Tour to the U.S. for Appellate Judges

07 August 2018 USAID/PROLoG Organizes Study Tour to the U.S. for Appellate Judges

From July 18 to 27, eight civil and administrative appellate judges and one appellate judicial assistant, the winner of the USAID/PROLoG-supported first “Judicial Academy,” traveled to Washington, D.C. and San Francisco for a study tour of the U.S. judicial system. The tour began in Washington, D.C. with a visit to the Federal Judicial Center, where the delegates were introduced to the U.S. federal judicial system, the Code of Ethics for federal judges, the role of judicial leadership, and continuing judicial education in the federal judicial system. On their second day in Washington the delegation visited the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

During the San Francisco portion of the study tour the Georgian delegation was introduced to California’s judicial system. The delegation visited the major judicial institutions, including the Judicial Council of California (the rule-making arm of the California court system); the California Commission on Judicial Performance (which investigates complaints of judicial misconduct); the Superior Court for San Francisco; the First District Court of Appeals, and the University of California’s Hastings College of Law. The delegation had the opportunity to observe hearings and interact with American judges, who shared their experience with their Georgian colleagues.  

In addition to the official visits, the delegation enjoyed the Washington D.C. and San Francisco bus tours, visited museums and other cultural events.

USAID/PROLoG organizes exchanges between Georgia and the U.S. as part of its expanded judicial exchange activities, which are part of its efforts to support and strengthen the Georgian judicial system. This includes study visits for Georgian judges, intensive placements of Georgian judges in U.S. courts, and multi-week placements of U.S. judges in Georgian courts.
