The High School of Justice (HSoJ) was established in April of 2006. Its structure, organisation and operation is regulated by the Law of Georgia on the High School of Justice and the Statute of the School.

The main objective for establishing the HSoJ was to create a new, merit-based system of appointment of judges and to institutionalize trainings for sitting judges and other court staff.

The High School of Justice was established on the initiative and with the support of the Council of Europe, which itself means the existence of a strong institution of European model in Georgia for ensuring the judicial system with highly qualified personnel.


This program was made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
