USAID/PROLoG Restarts English Language Training for Judges Online

22 May 2020 USAID/PROLoG Restarts English Language Training for Judges Online

On the week of May 21, USAID/PROLoG re-started the English Language Training Program for Judges (ELTPJ). The objective of the program is to increase the English language ability of Georgia’s judges so that they can perform independent research in English and review legal opinions of different international judicial bodies. USAID/PROLoG also aims to increase the number of potential participants in future judicial exchange programs.

The ELTPJ focuses on judges who already have some level of English, and currently, up to 20 judges in two groups attend bi-weekly classes. Due to the COVID-19 related restrictions PROLoG’s current effort now focuses on online teaching.

The ELTPJ was initiated at the request of the High Council of Justice in 2018 and has improved English Language skills of more than 40 judges. It is implemented by the University of Georgia’s TOLES Legal English Center, and specifically focuses on legal English – both concepts and terminology. Through this process, the participating judges will both improve their English language skills and also their understanding of the concepts and principles that underscore the American legal system.
