JSCA and Fundación CONSTRUIR present judicial management assessment and model for Cochabamba

Cochabamba, January 15, 2018


In an effort to present the judicial management assessment and model proposed by JSCA and Fundación CONSTRUIR for Cochabamba, a socialization workshop was held in that city today. The event was attended by over 40 judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, representatives of justice sector organizations and judicial system operators.

The activity is part of the “Pilot Project for Modernizing Judicial Management and Promoting the Use of Oral Procedures in Six Cochabamba Courts,” which seeks to support the implementation of civil, criminal and family justice reforms in Bolivia through the proposal of a new management model. This proposal will allow for changes to the work processes to be tested. Said changes will take place on various levels: i) case processing, separating mere paperwork from procedures that require more in-depth analysis; ii) hearing management so that they are held or rescheduled in a timely manner; and iii) organizational, designing or redistributing tasks in order to achieve more efficient judicial management. In addition, there is a proposal to use electronic notifications.
