Behind the Project

The network "Transformation Lawyers" is a project initiated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH which has been working together with Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on the development and establishment of their legal and judicial systems since 1993.

 

The GIZ regional programme “Advice on Legal and Judicial Reform in the South Caucasus” aims to contribute to the establishment of a cross-border dialogue on the rule of law throughout the South Caucasus countries and to consolidate legal systems in conformity with their constitutions. The dialogue on the rule of law supports fair legislation, effective implementation and increased dissemination of the law to society.

 

GIZ creates new platforms for dialogue on a regular basis in order to provide fresh impetus for professional exchange between lawyers from the region. Furthermore GIZ puts a special focus on the capacity development of young lawyers from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
