Clooney foun­da­tion to check on tri­als

Bangkok Post - - SUNDAY PEOPLE -

A jus­tice foun­da­tion cre­ated by Ge­orge and Amal Clooney is set to an­nounce a global ini­tia­tive called Tri­alWatch to mon­i­tor court tri­als where there is a risk of abuse and to rank coun­tries’ ju­di­cial sys­tems.

Work­ing with the Columbia Univer­sity Law School and the Amer­i­can Bar As­so­ci­a­tion, the Tri­alWatch ini­tia­tive will train an in­ter­na­tional net­work of court mon­i­tors, in­clud­ing non-lawyers, whose re­ports will be used by le­gal ex­perts to grade tri­als ac­cord­ing to in­ter­na­tional stan­dards.
