The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC) collaborated with the Government of Grenada, the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project to embark upon a delay and backlog reduction project for the Supreme Court of Grenada. The overall aim of the JURIST Project is to improve the delivery of judicial services of CARICOM Independent Sovereign States and Associated Member States.
The Project is being funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) with the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) assigned as the implementing agency.
The project commenced in Grenada with a special training session for judges of the ECSC as well as other legal practitioners who will be assisting the court in the capacity of acting Judges. The training programme was developed by the Commonwealth Judicial Education Institute (CJEI) which is based in Halifax, Canada together with the Judicial Education Institute of the ECSC and the President and Judges of the CCJ.
It is estimated that the project will cost approximately EC $1 million which includes counterpart funding from the Government of Grenada and the ECSC.
