      • The attorneys will conduct research on jurisdictional activity for supporting children’s right to family wellbeing and access to justice and sentence execution.
      • The research will be published by JSCA.



Patricia Gutiérrez of Argentina and Eugenia Fuenzalida of Chile were selected to complete an internship at York University’s Osgoode Law School in Canada. They began their two weeks of training and research activities last Monday.

 

In addition to the training program, an inter-institutional coordination entity was created. It includes representatives of regional justice agencies and will monitor the pilot plan to improve court management in Cochabamba.


The training activity focused on strengthening knowledge and practices for the proper development of an oral justice system. The goal of good court management is for the final stage- the hearing- to be held promptly and based on quality information so that judges can impart justice in a timely, informed manner.
