Contract Law Textbook Released

On April 16, 2014, EWMI and the National Center for Commercial Law (NCCL) at Free University held an event to publicly present a newly published, Georgian language, Contract Law Textbook.  Georgia’s leading experts in contract law wrote the book over the course of the last year - under the editing direction and with the financial support of EWMI through the Judicial Independence and Legal Empowerment Project (JILEP).  The book is designed to be used in the modern law school classroom. It not only provides law students with explanations of the core concepts of Georgian contract law, but the book is also structured in a way that teaches them how to analyze and solve problems.  Each chapter of the book consists of a theoretical section, enriched by relevant practical examples.   More than 100 people attended the book release event and the book signing that followed.  Both EWMI-JILEP and the NCCL have made the book available online through their websites.  EWMI will provide a number of hard copy versions to targeted law school libraries, public libraries, law firms, and relevant government institutions.
