Following the monitoring, the Legal Clinic “Public Reception” of the Kiev Cooperative Institute of Business and Law approved the Development Plan.
Recently, a meeting has been held to discuss the results of monitoring of the legal clinic “Public Reception”of the KCIBL in compliance with the Standards of activity of legal clinics approved in 2014 at the All-Ukrainian Forum of ALCU. The research of four directions of work: organizational, educational, consulting and law-educational was conducted from November 26 to November 29, 2019.
The participants of the meeting were:
- Tetiana Kaminska, Rector of Kyiv Cooperative Institute of Business and Law;
- Vasyl Omelchuk, Head of the Law Department and Head of the Legal Clinic “Public Reception” operating at a higher educational institution;
- Yulia Lomzhets, Executive Director of the Association of Legal Clinics of Ukraine.
During the meeting they also approved the Legal Clinic Development Plan, which was prepared in accordance with the monitoring results.
The participants of the meeting agreed that the indicators of support from the administration of the institution and involvement of the legal clinic in the educational process are at a good level, and there are opportunities for their improvement. Accordingly, the Development Plan provides for the opportunity to enroll the practice based on the results of student activities in the clinic.
Also the revitalization of the clinic’s advocacy work is important, which, unfortunately, has so far been carried out at a low level. Some points of the Plan are already being implemented. For example, the activity of a legal clinic is covered on the Institute’s website.
At the same time, all the proposed items of the Development Plan were supported by both the management of the Institute and the department, which is an excellent indicator for the future positive changes.
