Human Rights Training For Judicial Assistants of Appellate Courts

17 April 2018 Group of judicial assistants from Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate Courts

On April 13-15, a two-day workshop was organized for Tbilisi and Kutaisi Appellate, as well as Kutaisi City Court judicial assistants. Two parallel workshops were conducted by human rights experts, Besarion Bokhashvili and Konstantine Korkelia who covered underlying principles of human rights law, human rights jurisprudence of international human rights institutions and its impact on domestic practice, as well as Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life) and Article 9 (freedom of thought, conscience and religion) of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). Overall 43 judicial assistants attended the training. Additional workshops will be conducted in April-May, and will involve separate training for Criminal and Civil/Administrative law chamber judicial assistants in Tbilisi and Kutaisi. 

This is replication of a human rights program USAID/PROLoG started in 2017 for so called “writing” judicial assistants and covered Tbilisi City and Supreme Courts. The program aims at strengthening the judicial assistants’ legal skills and their knowledge of international human rights standards. Program involves intensive training covering both basic and practical aspects of human rights relevant to practice in Georgian courts, as well as a hands-on mentoring component involving actual cases. This year human rights program will be implemented in Georgian Appellate courts with the cooperation of EU4Justice judiciary support project.

USAID/PROLoG is actively engaged in strengthening judicial education in Georgia and continues to support different activities and trainings in this direction.

Since 2010, USAID/EWMI has worked with Georgia’s state institutions, civil society organizations, and law schools to strengthen the justice system to ensure due process, judicial independence, and the protection of human rights through wide-ranging activities. We also work to strengthen both legal education and the legal profession.
