Open Macedonia:

Judges Association

  • Mirror site in Skopje -- Work with Patrick to Mirror this Site
  • Trip report from Spring 1998, Dec 1998) – Email Pavalina Kochankovska (pkochank@kentlaw.edu) to see if there is such a thing. It should have been written by her last spring when she was in Skopje.
  • Photos – See if Pavalina has any photos
  • IPRO Concept – This refers to the general IIT IPRO concept. I have written materials on this that we need to put into the computer and post on the Web.
  • Macedonian Constitution – All of these things need to get posted. If we cannot get them off of the IUS site, here are four possible ways to get all legal materials: 1) Look on the Web; 2) Ask Pavlina if she has any of them; 3) Ask Brian at ABA CEELI in Skopje (ceelimk@nic.mpt.com.mk) if he can get them for us; 4) Ask Charles Rudnick to put you in touch with his friend from Skopje who works for the Supreme Court.
  • Laws
  • Decisions

In addition to this, we need to link this page to www.ius.org.mk

Also, the following areas will provide good services which I believe are found in the above URL:

LEGAL - all these pages and links are in varying degrees of completeness

1. Courts in Macedonia: This link is under construction in English version; and works in Macedonian version. This link leads to information about supreme, appellate, and trial courts in

the region. (It's in Macedonian, so I can't read it, but it looks as though that info includes names, telephone numbers, as well as legal documents).

2. Lawyers in Macedonia This link Link is under construction in English version; live in Macedonian version This link leads to names, telephone numbers and addresses of lawyers in the

region

3. Notaries: This link is under construction in both languages

4. Legal databases: Link is live in both languages and leads to a list of laws (where are they from? who they apply to? I'm assuming that they're local and regional laws).

  1. Legal library This link is under construction in both languages.

6. Legal links: This link is live only in Macedonian version, though the links are written in English. It links to law journals, libraries, the European Court of Justice, and the Euopean Court for Human Rights.

7. Assembly of Republic of Macedonia: Link is under construction in both languages

  1. Constitutional Court: This link is under construction in both languages

9. Judicial Council: This link is under construction in both languages

10. Government of Republic of Macedonia: This link is under construction in both languages

11. Ministry of Justice: This link is under construction in both languages

12. Law schools: This link is live in both languages and leads to a list of link to US and regional law schools. If we are not on there, we need to be. You can email Brian at CEELI to get this done.

Media links regarding Macedonia – Research this issue. I know that the CNN, NY Times, Chicago Tribune, NPR and/or Yahoo News will have something. We should just link to them. Just get the URLs.

Links to other Web Sites regarding Macedonia – You should find some by searching the Internet and provide the URLs so we can link to them. After you search the Internet, you might ask Brian and Pavlina if they have any additional thoughts.

Proposals – I know that Pavlina has done one, just get it and put it on the Web.

Discussion groups and forums: Perhaps we can discuss security in Macedonia? I think that the Dean has written some on this, but you will have to check with him. Otherwise, right now it will just have to be done through the discussion group system that Patrick knows about.

PR I think there was something written on the Villanova project in this regard. You will have to check with Dean Perritt.

Sponsors are ABA CEELI, Judges Association, and law school in Macedonia, however, you will have to check with Charles Rudnick.

Training: Let’s leave this for know until we start developing our training.

Power Point Slide Show: Check with Dean Perritt to see if he has anything, but otherwise, we need to make one. It should not be to hard, but I think the Pavlina can help with this.

Maps of Macedonia: We need to find them, search the Internet or scan them in.
