The New Vision University Legal Ethics Chair is pleased to announce admission opening for students to participate in a distance learning course in legal ethics chair clinic (four months practical course). The third, fourth year BA students and LLM students are eligible for the admission. The course format will be remote.

Practical course in Legal Ethics will be delivered by Ms. Tamar Khubuluri, Senior Lawyer of the Georgian Bar Association Ethics Commission (GBA EC), Legal Ethics Chair Researcher and Ms. Ana Loria, elected member of GBA EC and Legal Ethics Co-Chair.
During the course, the students will learn the main principles and standards of legal ethics; they will become familiar with the practice of GBA EC and the Disciplinary chamber of the Supreme court of Georgia. Students will draft case-briefs of EC decisions/recommendations and decisions of the Disciplinary chamber of the Supreme court of Georgia, which will be uploaded on the legal ethics chair online platform. The case-briefs will be accessible online for every interested person. While drafting the case-briefs, students will also acquire writing skills. They will be able to draft legal arguments in the judgments. Students will be granted certificates upon completing the course in Legal Ethics Clinic.
