NVU Legal Ethics Chair established a working group that included past and present members of the Ethics Commission, legal practitioners, local and international experts. The group developed a course on Lawyers’ Legal Ethics for LLM students with the support of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) within the framework of East-West Management Institute’s (EWMI) project Promoting Rule of Law in Georgia (PROLoG).
The course covers the ethical issues and guidlines for attorneys’. The course consists of lectures, individual and group exercises, case-based learning and role-plays. The syllabus for LLM students is focused on comparative analysis of domestic and international law and practice in the professional ethics for lawyers.
On September 23th, 2019, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm, the legal ethics chair organizes a meeting for professors from various universities around the country to assist in the implementation of the Ethics Course at master’s level and to share finalized syllabus.
Professors are invited to take part in the meeting held on 23 September at New Vision University. Recommendations of attending professors regarding syllabus content and teaching materials will be incorporated in the final product.
The meeting will be held at the Administrative Building of New Vision University, Mikeladze str. 1a.
