Ukraine: Workshop on Efficiency and Transparency of Court Administration

August 1, 2018 - August 2, 2018
Participants of the Workshop on Efficiency and Transparency of Court Administration

CLDP, in cooperation with the Supreme Court of Ukraine, designed and implemented the Workshop on Transparent and Efficient Court Administration II. The workshop took place in Odesa, Ukraine, on August 1-2, 2018. The workshop participants included Ukrainian lawyers and court administrators as well as representatives of the U.S. judiciary and legal community.

Adoption of new procedural codes as well as the expected establishment of the High Court on Intellectual Property is the source of both challenges and opportunities for court administration in Ukraine. A U.S. court administrator and a highly experienced practicing attorney working together with CLDP prepared a program adapted to the most topical needs of the Ukrainian judiciary, allowing it to make the most efficient use of the best international practices with regard to the most prominent issues of court administration in Ukraine. This helped further improve not only the qualifications of dozens of Ukrainian court administrators participating in the workshop, but also their colleagues in Ukrainian regions, among whom they would disseminate knowledge and expertise obtained in the workshop. 

The workshop thus contributed to the solution of challenges in the implementation of more efficient and effective court administration in Ukraine, which is among the key factors of continued reforms of the Ukrainian judiciary system.

 

Upcoming Programs

July 1, 2020 - August 31, 2020

Most of Iraq’s hydrocarbons are located in the province of Basrah. In spite of these mineral resources, unemployment is high in the province. To increase the likelihood that university graduates will be hired, since the summer of 2019, CLDP, in close cooperation with the University of Houston/Petroleum Technology Initiative (PTI), has been conducting a program to equip students from four Basrah universities with the skills sought by International Oil Companies (IOC) that operate in the province. A key skill required from new hires by the IOCs is competence in project management. To this end, PTI, under a contract with CLDP developed and taught in Houston in August 2019, a two-week course on “Project Management in Oil and Gas Exploration and Production”. This course was taught to delegations from four Basrah universities: Basrah University, Southern Technical University, Basrah University for Oil and Gas, Basrah Oil Training institute. Each university was supposed to send one professor and three students to Houston. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond their control, three of the professors were unable to attend the two-week course in Houston, a course that was very well-received by the lone professor and by all the students. Therefore, at CLDP’s request, PTI will now develop an online version of this course, to be used by the universities of the professors who could not go to Houston in August 2019. This development will take place in July and August 2020.
