One of the partners and organizers of the “Tomorrow’s Lawyer” program, The Quality and Accessible Legal Aid in Ukraine Project, together with the Coordination Center for Legal Aid Provision, conducted a three-day development course for trainers (DCT) to boost skills of working with vulnerable groups of clients within the free legal aid system.
Of the 84 candidates who submitted applications for the training, the competition committee selected only 18 applicants. And we are proud of the fact that among the selected participants there were 15 tomorrow’s lawyers!
The lawyers who were qualified for the course will conduct trainings for lawyers involved in providing free legal aid in all regions of Ukraine. Trainings will focus on developing skills for working with representatives of vulnerable groups, effective communication (including in court), emotional management and stress. It is expected that trainings for advocates in the regions will start in May 2018.
We are very pleased that the program participants are involved in such important public activities and work to improve the system of free legal aid provision.
Dear participants, please be reminded that the Tomorrow’s Lawyer Program will be happy to receive and share with the entire community your success stories and professional life events. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
