NGO “Youth Union” offers a new project online mock trial, which will start on May 4. The project will be led by Amiran Giguashvili, a current lawyer and criminal lecturer at Ilia State University, who will be a judge during the project. This project is designed for law students, 2nd, 3rd, 4th year and undergraduate students. Therefore, the project will be carried out in a different way. As participants will already have some knowledge and experience, the project is focused on putting this into practice. At the beginning of the project, the participants will be divided into groups, where they will choose the leader of the group and will start working on the specific case that will be given to them at the beginning of the project. Therefore there is no need for mentors in the project. Participants will have a specific time to work on the case, after which the process will take place. During this time they have to decide for themselves how to act in accordance with the norms of the criminal procedure, how to prepare for the trial. This will allow them to identify themselves, and if, for example, they have been dependent on the mentor before and decided under his guidance, for example, what the introductory word was like, what questions to ask, and so on. Now they have a chance to prepare independently, like in a real process. As for the cases, it is confidential and will be given directly to the participants after the start of the project.
The project will start on May 4, and the registration deadline is April 30. Individual registration is possible, where the number of participants should be 5-6 people. In case of group registration, it is necessary to indicate the data of each member of the group.

Due to the state of emergency in the country, the National Parliamentary Library of Georgia continues to open a digital library for open access to the Iverieli database, which has only been available in intranet form until now.
Another important part has been added to the bases that have been opened so far. In particular, 500 publications have been made available to the readers of the National Library in the form of a separate collection called the "Diaspora Library".
In the intranet part of the databases of the National Library, there are still publications on which copyright applies.
The National Library, despite the current situation, respects the rights of authors and publishers and does not place digital versions of their publications in the open section of the electronic database. If a publisher or author wants to open their own publication for open access, they must apply in writing to the National Parliamentary Library of Georgia.
