Monitoring of ENEMLOS
ERASMUS+ office in Podgorica held a project monitoring of ENEMLOS on June 24, 2021. The monitoring was attended by representatives of the Faculty of Law of the University of Montenegro, as well as representatives of non-academic partners in Montenegro, including Bar Chamber of Montenegro represented by the Project Manager Dr Nina Radulovic.
The meeting has been held in the premises of the faculty.
The monitoring of the ERASMUS + office to the Faculty of Law was an opportunity to present the activities that have been realized in the course of the Project so far, as well as to exchange experiences between academic and non-academic partners.
The Project Coordinator from the faculty Prof. dr Biljana Đuričin emphasized that the Project implementation so far is going well, although with some delay related to study visits abroad caused by Covid pandemic. She pointed out the necessity of active involvement of non-academic partners that should be visible through utilization of the Project’s funds awarded to particular partners.
The Project Manager of the Bar Chamber emphasized that the Chamber has invested up to now more personal funds in the successful implementation of the Project then the ones awarded by the project itself. This has been done in the form of volunteer work or direct finances. The Chamber undertook self-initiative activities that have added value to the Project, such as the “Green Legal Aid” initiative and publication of training booklet from the first online training performed by Croatian partners. She has also announced the publication of another training booklet in English relating to second training performed by Polish partners and a “Justice Fair” that will be held in autumn in a renewed trade center in Podgorica aiming to promotion of law and legal professions, but also ENEMLOS project.
Erasmus+ Head of office in Montenegro, Mrs. Vanja Drljević has praised activities of the Bar Chamber of Montenegro, especially the “Green Legal Aid” initiative and noted its efforts intended for the Project promotion. However, she generally stressed out that the Project needs more advertising and more grounds for long term sustainability. As a recommendation she suggested involvement of the Ministry of Justice in the latter implementation phases.
The monitoring ended with a tour of the premises at the Faculty of Law, which were reconstructed for the needs of the Legal Clinic and the Faculty’s Library. The visitors personally witnessed these very nicely adapted spaces.
