JJPTP will select 21 young justice professionals with leadership potential and provide them with a short-term, U.S. based professional training experience. The program will focus on best practices in U.S. law enforcement and judicial review.
Candidates will be drawn from among the young cadre of Bulgarian judges, prosecutors, and attorneys with the goal of selecting 7 judges, 7 prosecutors, and 7 attorneys who are committed to implementing and applying the lessons from their U.S. training to their jobs in Bulgaria. During the first half of June 2016, the selected participants will take part in two weeks JJPTP training in the USA.
The program is made possible by the generosity of the America for Bulgaria Foundation (ABF) and is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE).
