Kyrgyz Legal Professionals Receive Jury Trial Trainings

Mock Jury Trial being conducted in Bishkek

November 2009 

In July and September, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) in Kyrgyzstan, with funding from the British Embassy in Kazakhstan, organized jury trial trainings for Kyrgyz judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys. The trainings will help boost the participants’ knowledge and practical jury trial skills.

Rubinshtein Evgeni and Maksimova Tatiana, well-known Russian attorneys and professors of law, conducted the trainings in Bishkek and Osh. ABA ROLI organized roundtables in Bishkek, on October 28, and in Osh, on November 5, to obtain participants’ feedback and to discuss outcomes of the two trainings. Participants called for collaborated efforts to effectively introduce jury trials into the Kyrgyz judicial system.
