Mid-term Performance Evaluation of the Effective Rule of Law Program (EROL) and the Kosovo Legal Profession Program (KLP) (2014)
USAID/Kosovo has awarded ME&A the mid-term performance evaluation of two Rule of Law programs in the country, the Effective Rule of Law Program (EROL) and the Kosovo Legal Profession Program (KLP). The ME&A evaluation team is composed of four international and local experts who will conduct field work in Pristina from March 16 through April 6, 2014.
EROL is a four-year program that focuses on making the justice system more independent, accountable, efficient, and effective. The program objectives include strengthening the justice sector’s operational capacity, focusing on the courts, the Kosovo Judicial Council (KJC), the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), and the Kosovo Judicial Institute (KJI).
KLP is a three-year program whose primary objective is to improve the quality of legal education; the capacities of the legal profession; and expanded public awareness and outreach. KLP initiated and maintains continuing legal education activities to improve the practical skills of law school students and practicing attorneys throughout Kosovo.
This performance evaluation seeks to provide USAID/Kosovo with an objective external assessment of the management and performance of both programs. In addition, the ME&A team will provide lessons learned and recommendations to USAID/Kosovo for future assistance to the justice sector.
Since 2010, ME&A has conducted more than 40 evaluations for USAID and the U.S. Department of State in more than 25 countries worldwide.
