New legal publications introduced with EU assistance (29/03/2011)
The Kosovo’s legal education system has been enriched with a number of new publications – the Legal Publication Series – which aim to fill the gap of the missing resources in the area. The Kosovo Law Center (KLC) introduced on Tuesday the following titles: a publication of applicable laws in Kosovo called "Lex Legis"; a bulletin covering judgments of the Supreme Court and District Courts; and a publication of the law booklet called "Themis". These first titles will be complemented by additional publications during 2011.
This initiative has been supported by the EU through the Legal Education Reform twinning project, managed by the EC Liaison Office. The Legal Series Publications will both support legal practitioners in their everyday work as well as contribute to building Kosovo's future legal practice.
The EU-funded project aims to strengthen the rule of law in Kosovo by developing a sustainable education system. By the end of the project institutions are expected to have increased their competencies in providing legal education and training in compliance with European standards.
"Lex Legis" is a compilation of the most important applicable laws on a specific subject. The first "Lex Legis" subject is environmental law. Publications on the following subject will be available by the end of 2011: copyright and trademark law, labor law, criminal law, property law, economic law and cadastral legislation.
The bulletin of the Supreme Court presents a collection of all judgments brought by the court on criminal, civil, commercial and administrative cases and aims to provide basis for a synchronized interpretation of the law.
"Themis" booklet is an introductory publication to a specific field of law. The first subject covered by the booklet will be divorce. The "Themis" booklet will in the future focus on: criminal law, European internal market, international organizations and the telecommunications law.
