USAID/PROLoG Presents its New Judicial Exchange Activities at Conference of Judges

26 January 2018 USAID/PROLoG Presents its New Judicial Exchange Activities at Conference of Judges

On January 20, the High Council of Justice hosted the XXII Conference of Judges, the annual meeting of Georgia’s judges. The Conference was attended by 268 of Georgia’s 310 judges, as well as representatives of the NGO sector and media.

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Chair of the High Council of Justice, Nino Gvenetadze, and Secretary of the High Council of Justice, Giorgi Mikautadze, opened the Conference by presenting their annual reports to the audience.

In addition, Laura Berger, Acting Director of USAID-Georgia’s Democracy, Governance and Social Development Office, and Neil Weinstein, PROLoG’s Deputy Chief of Party, presented USAID’s expanded judicial exchange activities for Georgia’s civil and administrative judges, which will be implemented by PROLoG. Under those activities, USAID/PROLoG will further strengthen the professional capacity of individual judges to work effectively and provide additional opportunities to acquire skills.

This will be achieved by supporting activities that will enable Georgian judges to have more direct interactions with U.S. judges, administrators, and judicial educators. As part of these activities, USAID/PROLoG will design a number of activities to bring Georgian civil and administrative judges to the United States, including study visits, trainings, shadowing and secondment opportunities. In total approximately 100 Georgian civil and administrative judges will travel to the USA by early 2020. Participants will be selected from all courts of all regions based on relevant experience and ability to use and share knowledge upon return. The application for the first opportunity, a study tour to New York and Washington, DC in April 2018, has already been announced and can be found at: http://jobs.ge/eng/164119/
