The overall objective of the Project „Support to Justice Sector Reform in Moldova – Reinforcing the
National Capacities to Provide Efficient Skills-Based Training for Legal Professionals” (NIJ2) was to
promote a more efficient justice system for all by strengthening the capacities and national training
structures of legal professionals.
Reform in the justice sector is a key area in Moldova’s national development policies and plans.
Although important efforts have been deployed during the last years to improve the efficiency,
transparency, fairness and accessibility of the justice sector, the justice system still fails to deliver at
the level of users’ expectations. The problem of inadequate and insufficient reasoning/argumentation
of judicial acts represents an issue of major concern for the whole judicial system. Judgments that are
clear, logical, and comprehensive advance the rule of law by helping the population better understand
the rules and engender respect for judicial institutions and judicial professionals. Through its mandate,
the NIJ can directly influence the quality of judicial acts, the reform of the justice system and ultimately
the trust of people in justice institutions and processes.
