Ukrainian courts – traditionally closed-door institutions – are now getting closer to people. For the first time in Ukraine there appeared judges-speakers, a professional association of court press-secretaries was established, press services introduce modern communication tools.

To help the judiciary increase public trust and enhance citizens’ access to justice, our organization is working with the Ukrainian-Canadian Judicial Reform Support Project (SJRP), funded by the Ministry of International Affairs of Canada. We contribute to the development and implementation of training programs and methodological materials on communications for press-secretaries, judges, and employees of the Service for Judicial Security.
