USAID/PROLoG Supports First Online Trainings on Child Rights for LAS Lawyers

05 August 2020 USAID/PROLoG Supports First Online Trainings on Child Rights for LAS Lawyers

In July-August, with USAID/PROLoG grant assistance, the State funded Legal Aid Service (LAS) organized online trainings on Child Rights for three groups of lawyers and consultants, as well as selected public registry lawyers.

The Georgian Parliament approved a new Code on Child Rights in September 2019, which regulates issues of Child rights and freedoms and creates a legal framework for the functioning of relevant support systems. The Code requires specialized interdisciplinary training for all actors within the justice system who have contact with a child. USAID/PROLoG updated the training module developed by UNICEF and conducted a ToT for Georgian Bar Association lawyers, who are also now trainers for LAS lawyers. The updated training module is a four-day course: two days devoted to legal aspects, the others involving a psychologist and a social worker. The training sessions covered 87 lawyers and consultants from around the country.

USAID/PROLoG supported its partner organizations, including LAS, to purchase a one-year subscription to Zoom Education, which allowed them to conduct online trainings. Distance education platforms will help LAS to efficiently continue operation and offer training with reduced costs and greater flexibility.
