First Version of the Justice Innovations Program Begins in the United States

New York, July 25, 2017

Why is the US experience useful to Latin America? This is the question posed by the first version of the Justice Innovations Program, a joint initiative of JSCA and the Center for Court Innovation, CCI (www.courtinnovation.org), which began yesterday in New York.


The training program includes five days of classes and site visits to criminal and civil justice institutions, where participants will learn about the work that they do and will have the opportunity to speak with justice system stakeholders. The progress that has been made with North American models, which have been based on the use of oral procedures and litigation for many years, is meant to serve as an experience that can be adapted to Latin America. The process also may lead to the incorporation of new discussions and courses of action in the region that can strengthen reform processes.
