GBA meets online to discuss its involvement in the judicial selection process

17 March 2020 GBA meets online to discuss its involvement in the judicial selection process

On March 13, 2020 Georgian Bar Association conducted the first online (Facebook Group) meeting of its Justice and Judicial Reforms Committee.  The meeting was dedicated to the development of recommendations on GBA’s role in the judicial selection process. The members of the Committee participating included Eka Lomidze, Khatia Kurua, Ana Khupenia, Eka Getsadze, Nino Andriashvili, Shorena Kapanadze, Lela Kurkumuli and Sophio Sokhadze. The meeting was facilitated by the Committee Coordinator Tamta Devdariani.

The Committee has agreed on the content of the document, which will be composed of the following chapters:

  1. General overview of judicial selection process;
  2. Role of GBA in the judicial selection process;
  3. The challenges and positive aspects of GBA participation in judicial selection process;
  4. Recommendations for improvement of GBA role in the judicial selection process in future.

The chapters were divided among the Committee members, who will draft the initial version. The next Committee  meeting is planned for later in April.

Development of the recommendation by the GBA is supported through a USAID/PROLoG Grant, which aims to support institutional development of the Bar Association and focuses on three main directions: Support of Ethics Commission; Institutional Strengthening of the GBA and strengthening advocacy skills through CLE program. USAID/PROLoG has been working with the Georgian Bar Association to build up and strengthen its capacity since 2015.

Following the outbreak of COVID –19 both USAID/PROLoG and GBA are now running remotely and are for “social distancing” as the best way to combat the spread of the virus.
