Council of Europe national and international experts developed the needs assessment report focusing on the areas of expertise of the initial and in-service training programmes, the legislative framework practices and regulation governing the School, the communication practices, and the role of Georgian higher legal education institutions and their law programmes in relation to the initial training program of the School.
The needs assessment document was presented during the two-day working meeting organised on 19-20 July involving the management and the staff of the High School of Justice and the Council of Europe experts working on the document. The preparation of the paper was based on research conducted by CRRC Georgia consisting of online survey interviews, focus groups and qualitative interviews with internal and external stakeholders held with management and the staff of the School, Independent board, Teachers’ Council, judges, independent listeners, lawyers and prosecutors.
The report will be the main basis of the five-year strategy and action plan of the High School of Justice.
The activity is supported by the Council of Europe project “Support to the Judicial Reform in Georgia”, funded by voluntary contributions of Bulgaria, Liechtenstein, Lithuania Latvia, Norway, the Slovak Republic and Sweden to support the implementation of the Council of Europe Action plan for Georgia 2016-2019.
