EWMI/PROLoG Supports Academic Writing Initiative

26 June 2017 Representatives of academia, students and publishers attending the presentation

On June 23, Tbilisi State University (TSU) hosted a presentation of an Academic Writing Initiative.  Dr. Anna Dolidze, Parliamentary Secretary of the President of Georgia, approached EWMI/PROLoG with an initiative to develop an Academic Writing Manual for law schools that will establish academic writing and citation standards for law students and scholars engaged in academic research and writing. The manual will be based on the best practices of North American and European legal writing standards, adapted and tailored to the needs of Georgian academia.

The presentation was hosted by the Rector of Tbilisi State University, who stressed the importance of improving academic writing skills among students and engaging scholars in academic research; he reinforced TSU’s commitment to support this cause. Dr. Anna Dolidze talked about the structure of the Manual and a working process that involved several consultations with academics and scholars, as well as meetings with students.

The Manual will be finalized by September 2017, and will be widely distributed among Georgian law schools.
