    The Arab Society for Intellectual Property (ASIP) signed, on the first of this month, a cooperation agreement on areas of judicial training with the USAID-funded Rule of Law Project (ROLP).

    Under the Agreement, ASIP will help to train, educate, and develop the skills of court administrators and chiefs of diwan at Jordanian courts by developing training materials and lesson plans to implement the curriculum which was developed by ROLP expert consultants. This foundational level training is the first of three level training plans, which will provide the trainees with practical skills and knowledge in the area of court administration, and will increase their capabilities to perform their jobs.

    ROLP selected ASIP on basis of its inclusive technical bid submitted along with several training service providers in a public competition.

    The training program will consist of seven training courses with a total of 21 units. The seven courses are: the purposes and roles of courts, establishing credibility and building relationships, principles of case-flow management, data and information for decision making, principles of management, human resource basics, and executive planning.

    This ROLP aims at training about 30 court administrators and chiefs of diwan (Court Clerk Offices) in the Jordanian courts representing all governorates of Jordan.

    ASIP trainers will develop tests and evaluations for the program and the participants, conduct them as necessary, provide ROLP with final scores and evaluations, and provide the trainees who successfully complete the training with certificates.
