PROLoG-funded Gender and Law Chair Introduces Gender and Law Course to Academic Community

09 October 2017 Law professors from different universities discuss the Gender and Law Course syllabus

On September 29-30, the EWMI/PROLoG-supported Gender and Law Chair at Tbilisi State University (TSU), Ketevan Khutsishvili, organized a workshop to introduce the Gender and Law course to academia and practitioners in the field of gender and law. The workshop unified professors and practitioners from Tbilisi State University, David Agmashenebeli University, Georgian Technical University, Ilia State University, and Georgian American University (GAU). Alongside the academics were practitioners from the Office of the Public Defender and the Telavi Prosecutor’s Office, which are involved in awareness raising of violence against women. The workshop served the purpose of having a peer review of the content and structure of the course syllabus developed by the Gender and Law Chair.

The structure and sequence of topics within the course were commented on by the participants, and particular attention was devoted to elements by which to grade students. All the participants agreed that the practical elements in the course were of high importance, and a number of practical elements (e.g. moot court, simulation, case briefs) were selected for inclusion in the Gender and Law syllabus. It was also agreed to cross-discipline the course, which will make it possible to involve other disciplines in teaching law students. The course will be taught at TSU and GAU starting in Spring 2018.
