Azerbaijan: CLDP Leads Workshop for Justice Academy

June 19, 2017 - June 20, 2017

From June 19-20, CLDP organized a workshop on Judicial Ethics and Case Management for 126 judicial candidates in Baku, Azerbaijan. The workshop was held in coordination with the Azerbaijan Justice Academy as part of one-year curriculum for judicial candidates. The workshop aimed to train the candidates on international best practices and standards in judicial ethics and deliver basic principles of case management to facilitate transparent and efficient adjudication of commercial disputes. U.S. District Court Judges Jed S. Rakoff and Kimba M. Wood from the Southern District of New York served as experts for the workshop. Azerbaijan has one of the lowest judge-to-population ratios in the region, and this workshop is part of a multi-phase CLDP effort on judicial capacity building in Azerbaijan focusing on judicial candidates.

Upcoming Programs

July 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020

In July, August, and September 2020, CLDP, in collaboration with USTR and the University of Missouri, will provide virtual business fundamental courses to 20 Salvadoran textile representatives. CLDP has partnered with a textile and apparel expert who will conduct group sessions, as well as tailored sessions depending on the needs and businesses of the selected representatives. Lessons will cover business plan development and implementation, mentorship opportunities, local business resources, and personnel management. Furthermore, the sessions will give the Salvadoran textiles representatives the opportunity to begin developing comprehensive plans to effectively disseminate the knowledge they acquire during this program broadly across the industry with other textile professionals in El Salvador. Participants, who represent the Salvadoran private sector, key government agencies, and academia, will continue to engage their U.S. counterparts in this project for the remainder of the CLDP programming throughout 2021. This project is a part of CLDP’s and USTR’s capacity-building program to improve regional prosperity by fostering human and institutional capacity to improve the competitiveness of the Salvadoran textile industry.
