EWMI Improves Georgian Law School Libraries

On April 22-26, EWMI’s Judicial Independence and Legal Empowerment Project (JILEP) organized workshops at four Georgian law school libraries in connection with its “Information Services Development Program,” launched in November 2012, with the goal of developing a core set of functional law libraries available to Georgian law students. John Christensen, information services expert from Washburn University School of Law, conducted full-day workshops for the law library staff at Georgian-American University, International Black Sea University, Free University and Ilia State University.  Mr. Christensen spoke to the groups on topics such as, effectively searching international legal databases; properly using Adobe Connect software; and how to access online law training opportunities.  He also explained in detail how Georgian legal scholars could obtain research assistance from the Washburn University School of Law Library.
