Belgrade – On December 13, 2017, the Judicial Academy and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), a U.S. government agency, celebrated the accomplishments and marked the closure of the two-and–a-half-year, $500,000, Judicial Academy support project.

USAID worked with the Judicial Academy to further the Academy’s capacity to train and educate members of Serbia’s judiciary. In particular, the project supported the development of an electronic learning platform called e-Academy, the establishment of Judicial Academy regional offices in Novi Sad and Kragujevac, and strengthened the Academy’s administrative capacities to provide better training for judiciary.

“Judicial reforms are not just required for EU accession; they are the cornerstone of governance and economic reforms and essential to Serbia’s well-being and prosperity. At the heart of these reforms are independent, accountable and professional judges and judicial staff, who depend on high-quality judicial education and training”, said US Ambassador Kyle Scott.
