CLDP co-organized two workshops on intellectual property in Batumi, Georgia from September 23-25, 2017. In coordination with Georgia's High School of Justice, National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (Sakpatenti), and the Georgian Copyright Association, CLDP led a Workshop on Adjudication of Civil Intellectual Property Infringement for 23 judges from courts throughout Georgia on September 23 and 24. Judge Bernice Donald (6th Circuit) and Judge Virginia Covington (Middle District of Florida) presented U.S. judicial best practices and case studies for the adjudication of IP-related cases. 

CLDP also held a Media Workshop on Civil Intellectual Property (IP) Infringement Disputes for 25 journalists from national and local media outlets on September 25. The program aimed to build the capacity of journalists to understand and cover IP issues, thereby raising awareness and improving understanding among the general public. This event was organized in coordination with the National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (Sakpatenti) and the Georgian Copyright Association. 

These programs are part of a multi-year series of trainings designed to address ongoing IP enforcement challenges in Georgia, funded by the U.S. Department of State.
