Prof. Barron Teaches Course in Republic of Georgia
Professor Barbara Barron just returned from the Republic of Georgia where she taught a 4 day course in teaching and creating skills courses for law professors from throughout that country. The Republic of Georgia has instituted the jury trial system for capital offenses. Jury trials eventually will be available in enumerated violent felony cases as well. The nation’s law schools are now poised to develop their own skills courses to train their students in Anglo-American advocacy in anticipation of the change to the jury system. The 4 day course she designed (including creation of all materials) was to introduce the law professors to the theoretical and technical concepts that are the backbone of our skills curriculum. The course was sponsored by ABA ROLI – Tbilisi office.
