USAID-PROLoG Supports the Civil Procedure Reform

29 August 2018 USAID-PROLoG Supports the Civil Procedure Reform

On August 24-26, in Kobuleti, the USAID-PROLoG together with the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) supported a workshop dedicated to the reform of the Georgian Civil Procedure Code (CivPC). The reform package initiated by the Association of Georgian Law Firms (ALFG) suggests changes in the various areas of the civil procedure, including the role of the parties and the court; the preparation of the hearing; the acceleration of the hearing and taking and administration of evidence. The workshop was led by the chairwomen of the Legal Affairs Committee of the Parliament of Georgia, Ekaterine Beselia the acting Chief Justice, Mzia Todua and the First Deputy Minister of Justice, Mikheil Sarjveladze. The workshop was attended by the members of the Parliament, judges, lawyers and representatives of academia. The participants discussed the CivPC reform package and agreed that the existing regulations and legislative gaps unnecessarily complicate the civil procedure, create a barrier to justice and overload courts, making the civil litigation inefficient tool for settling disputes. While summing up the workshop Ekaterine Beselia suggested to initiate a series of discussions to present the package to a wider group of stakeholders to make sure there is a broad consensus regarding the reform and changes brought about by it.
