On February 6, the High School of Justice (HSOJ) presented its new website and web-portal to the public. The HSOJ leadership explained that the software package, developed by the Georgian company Idea Design with the support of EWMI through the Judicial Independence and Legal Empowerment Project (JILEP), includes three major elements: 1) a new organization website; 2) an online catalogue of the HSOJ library; and 3) a web platform made up of “portals” for the special use of student judge candidates, sitting judges, and court staff. The student judge portal allows student judges to see their training program calendar, receive ‘alerts’ regarding class changes, receive class assignments, and view their evaluation results and class ranking. It also allows students to communicate with their instructors, submit class assignments and take examinations electronically. Sitting judges and court staff will use their portals to participate in the design of their respective continuing legal education programs, sign-up for training events, and evaluate training content. Overall, the software package will allow the HSOJ to communicate with its students and professors with greater ease and efficiency, and make HSOJ operations more transparent.
