Free University Submits Amicus Curiae to the Constitutional Court of Georgia

11 October 2017 Free University Submits Amicus Curiae to the Constitutional Court of Georgia

In the framework of its EWMI/PROLoG grant, Free University in cooperation with the Washburn University School of Law (WUSL) are working on amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs to be submitted to the Constitutional Court of Georgia. Through this effort, students at Free University and students from WUSL work together on different legal issues and hone their research and writing skills on pending cases at the Constitutional Court.

This year, Free University identified two cases pending at the court for comparative research. One of the issues concerns a constitutional complaint challenging the constitutionality of articles in the Law on Public Procurement that create favorable conditions for the LLC “Georgian Post” with regards to postal and courier services, contrary to the constitutional principle of free enterprise and competition.

Students at WUSL researched the issue of government imposed monopolies in U.S. Constitutional Law and court practice, while Georgian students supervised by a clinical professor overviewed European Union (EU) Directives, the country’s obligations under the EU Association Agreement, and the practice of EU Court of Justice. The amicus brief was submitted to the Constitutional Court in September. Free University and WUSL will submit another amicus brief to the Constitutional Court by late October.
