Marchenko Tatyana, Legrant’s lawyer took part in the session of the Annual Congress of Regional Justice Reform Councils that was held on 26 March 2019 in Kyiv.

The process of formation of Regional justice reform councils lasted from July 2018 until February 2019. Each Regional Justice Reform Council consists of representatives of a broad range of legal professions, academia, students and CSOs, who are meeting on a regular basis in order to identify and discuss justice reform related topics of highest relevance for their region. Their goal is to enable a constant and structured dialogue between the central level and the regions to give politicians in Kyiv a more precise picture of the needs and expectations of the regions with regard to the justice reform. At the same time these councils will oversee the impact of the implementation of reform efforts in their regions.

The Regional Justice Reform Councils are acting as standing working groups that facilitate exchanges among legal professionals and contribute to a better policy-making in the justice sector. The EU Project “Pravo-Justice” supports Regional Justice Reform Councils by providing strategic guidance, operational support, as well as international expertise and best comparative practices.
