USAID/PROLoG Continues Support of Human Rights Trainings for Judicial Assistants

31 December 2018 Judicial assistants from regional courts of Georgia attend human rights training

From December 14-17, two two-day workshops on human rights were organized for judicial assistants from the regional courts of Georgia. The two parallel workshops were conducted by human rights experts Besarion Bokhashvili and Ekaterine Lomtatidze, and addressed topics such as Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) (right to a fair trial). The workshop also worked to develop the legal assistants’ legal writing and substantiation skills.

One workshop was conducted for criminal law judicial assistants and another for civil and administrative law assistants. Overall, 46 judicial assistants attended the training from various regional courts of Georgia, including Batumi, Rustavi, Akhaltsikhe, Zugdidi, Bolnisi, Gori, Telavi and Khashuri. A second round of trainings for the same judicial assistants will be conducted in February; it will cover additional articles of the ECHR that are relevant for the adjudication of criminal and civil/administrative cases.

These trainings are a continuation of the human rights program for so called “writing” judicial assistants that USAID/PROLoG started in 2016, and that has already covered Tbilisi City Court, Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate Courts, and the Supreme Court of Georgia. The program aims to strengthen the judicial assistants’ legal skills and their knowledge of international human rights standards, and involves intensive training of both basic and practical aspects of human rights relevant to practice in Georgian courts. The human rights program is implemented with the cooperation of EU4Justice judiciary support project and High School of Justice.
