Management of justice system institutions improved

The High Council of Justice (HCOJ) is the constitutionally-mandated institution with the authority to appoint and promote judges, as well as to initiate disciplinary proceedings against them. PROLoG works with the HCOJ to strengthen its capacities and supports its efforts to improve the judiciary. As part of this effort, PROLoG works to support the HCOJ to develop and implement the Judicial Reform Strategy and Action Plan, improve the judicial examination process, and develop its outreach capacity.

The Legal Aid Service (LAS) is the government’s provider of legal aid to indigent criminal defendants. PROLoG supports the LAS in the development of a lawyer appraisal system, to strengthen the LAS Council’s work, build the capacity of the LAS, and match the training and education of LAS lawyers with the real needs of the lawyers.

PROLoG also supports the Georgian Bar Association in a variety of ways, including the piloting of bench-bar meetings. The goal of these meetings is to increase professionalism within the legal system by promoting the exchange of information and ideas between the judiciary, practicing lawyers and prosecutors.
