About the project


The USAID Judicial Strengthening Project, launched in December 2011, is a three years project implemented by Tetra Tech DPK. The overarching objective of the Project is to strengthen the role of the judiciary in the separation of powers and develop broad based support for rule of law and judicial sector reform. More specifically, the project focuses on supporting the development of justice sector professional associations; developing effective court governance systems and practices and improving the efficiency and quality of justice.

Areas of work
The Project main components are as follows:

Advocacy and Citizen Participation in Judicial Sector Reforms – Support the development of justice sector professional associations’ capacities to play a leadership role in justice system reform efforts and to advocate for the interest of their members; and increase public awareness and participation in the justice sector reforms and the rule-of-law issues.

Independent, efficient and consistent application of judicial sector policies and practices-Develop effective court governance systems and practices; increase the role of the judiciary in preparing laws and policies governing the branch; and establish regular coordination and consensus building on key issues among judicial institutions. Promote more effective and accountable operations of judicial sector institutions and courts; improve court operations through innovation and technology; and design and apply performance standards.  

Effective legal personnel and efficient processes - Improve efficiency and quality of justice by provision of specialized trainings to judges, and by developing and applying national time standards for case processing. Build capacities of court personnel to provide efficient services to court users.
