Enhancing Georgia's commercial environment stands as a key priority in the EU-Georgia Association Agenda. Aligned to foster economic development through an improved legal system, the Association Agenda emphasises the need for Georgia to align with EU acquis in various legal areas. In line with Georgia's steps towards EU accession, GLIP actively contributes to and organises training and study visits for Georgian lawyers.

GLIP's members, who were the first Georgian lawyers to visit the European Court of Justice (ECJ), have since visited multiple European institutions. GLIP advocates the introduction of European judicial practices and the implementation of European directives within the Georgian judicial system. The organisation collaborates extensively with the Higher School of Justice and Court Building, engaging in joint projects aimed at achieving greater justice for the people of Georgia.

Annually, GLIP, in partnership with the German Foundation for International Legal Cooperation (Deutsche Stiftung für Internationale Rechtliche Zusammenarbeit eV, IRZ), hosts a conference to discuss existing problems and explore European Court case law. European institution practitioners are invited to share insights and examine relevant issues.

Recently, GLIP initiated several noteworthy projects. In June 2022, members visited law institutions in Strasbourg, meeting the Georgian judge of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), Lado Chanturia. The visit included attendance of an oral appeal hearing by the Grand Chamber of the Court in the Sanchez v France case. GLIP also held an information meeting at the Council of Europe on European standards and mechanisms in the battle against corruption.

In September 2022, GLIP members attended the European Law Institute (ELI) Annual Conference in Madrid and the International Conference in Vienna. The latter, organised by the University of Vienna, Europa Institute, and Jean Monet Chair, focused on new frontiers for EU investment policy. Additionally, GLIP visited the ELI head office to discuss the institute's functioning and ongoing projects with Secretary General Vanessa Wilcox. The study visit also included a meeting with the director of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, Emil Brix, to explore the academy's training program in political sciences, international and EU law.

In 2023, with the support of the International Center for Private Entrepreneurship, a project involving employees and civil society was implemented to strengthen the enforcement of labour law. For this purpose, intensive training was conducted for lawyers, practising attorneys, HR professionals, and company managers. Lawyers, representatives of companies, the judiciary, and professional unions participated in the meetings held within the framework of the project.

GLIP has signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Higher School of Justice, one of the leading higher and professional educational institutions in Georgia. Within the framework of the mentioned memorandum, several measures have already been implemented for students in different areas of law. Among them are public lectures with the co-organisation of the Law Council of Ilia State University.

With the support of the Professional Skills Agency, a project on human rights was specially created for the students of the vocational educational institution. It included informing students and trainees about the jury trial, personal data protection, labour law, and the social responsibility of business, attending the court sessions of the participants, participating in a simulated process, conducting lectures for students of other partner colleges, organising a student club, field visits, meeting with experts, etc. The project created for students was handed over to the student club of the institution for future implementation. Dozens of projects implemented during 2023 serve the professional development of lawyers and the sharing of international or other countries’ experiences.
