On 29 September 2017, between 10:00 and 12:00, a workshop on the draft law on Legal Aid was organized by EUD Albania in cooperation with UNDP and EURALIUS IV Project.

The workshop was attended by a wide array of civil society organisations involved in the area of access to justice and which have in depth experience in providing and supporting the delivery of legal aid to the Albanian public. The aim of the workshop was to discuss with these civil society organizations the draft law prepared in consultation with EURALIUS IV and UNDP expertise.

With this aim in mind, following brief introductory remarks and presentations on the structure and novelties of the proposed draft and on the general comments and suggestions that had been already collected from the civil society, the floor was open to the participants to identify issues that may need to be tackled and provide their feedback on ways that the draft law can be improved upon.

At the conclusion of the workshop, the civil society organisations were invited to submit further comments and suggestions in writing by 6 October 2017. Following receipt of all comments, a draft reflecting all comments will be worked upon and presented for deliberation in legislative process.
