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.

As part of an effort to generate spaces for exchange and discussion, particularly among civil justice officials and judges, Universidad Torcuato di Tella (www.utdt.edu), the Argentine Procedure Law Association (https://aadproc.org.ar/ ) and the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) launched the Civil Justice Oral Procedure Activities in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The two-day activity is one of the results of the first version of the Inter-American Training Program on Civil Justice Reform offered by JSCA in 2016. This initiative provides a formal space in which legal professionals involved with civil reform processes can come together once a year to share knowledge and tools in order to increase their ability to contribute to the development of reform in their countries.
