|III. Improve the quality of Legal Education|
Under Component 3 of JILEP, EWMI will aim improve the quality of legal education by improving the accreditation process, introducing more practical skills training, making more specialized training available, and establishing a collaborative relationship with US law schools.
EWMI will establish two centers of learning in two Georgian law schools, and partner them with US law schools. One center will focus on dispute resolution skills, including the use of mediation and trial advocacy, and the other will focus on commercial law issues. The component will also foster the expansion of clinical legal education and will advise the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement on setting/implementing program accreditation standards for law schools.
Finally, this component will also increase the capacity of the Georgian Bar Association to provide continuing legal education (CLE) programs.
