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.

The activity is part of the project “Improving Access to Civil Justice in Latin America,” which JSCA is executing with the technical and financial support of Global Affairs Canada. The final goal is to increase the access of men and women in Latin America and the Caribbean to more equitable and efficient civil justice. JSCA is developing a set of activities to be deployed in the region that includes research, training and exchange programs.
