Participants of the Study Visit to Washington DC and San Francisco Share their Experience with Colleagues

31 October 2018 Participants of the Study Visit to Washington DC and San Francisco Share their Experience with Colleagues

In July 2018, 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.  On October 17, three participants of the visit, the judges of the Kutaisi Court of Appeals who participated in the July judicial exchange, organized an extended discussion to discuss the experience and knowledge acquired during the visit. The presentation was attended by other judges of the court, judicial assistants, clerks and other court personnel, lawyers, prosecutors, and representatives of the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association Kutaisi office. Presentations by the hosting judges focused on possibilities for alternative dispute resolution in Georgia, the judicial system in the U.S., judicial discipline in California courts, and invaluable lessons and experience acquired from observing court hearings by U.S. judges and from holding discussions with them.

USAID/PROLoG, within the framework of its judicial exchange (JudEx) activities, will continue supporting its exchange alumni in their efforts to reach out to various target groups in the judiciary system and pass on knowledge and experience acquired in the U.S.
