AGS Senior Executive Lawyer Justin Davidson, recently delivered 2 days of training to lawyers from various branches of the Papua New Guinea Department of Justice and Attorney General (DJAG). There were 14 participants who came from the Office of State Solicitor, Office of the Solicitor General and the Legal Policy and Governance Branch, whose legal work span from advising, drafting contracts and legislation and conducting litigation.
The training, which was delivered virtually, was provided as part of AGS’s regular program of training government lawyers with our Pacific neighbours. AGS provides its lawyers’ time on a pro bono basis.
Justin delivered a legal reasoning course which covered the structure of logical arguments, common difficulties with developing them and the steps in undertaking legal reasoning and analysis.
The feedback from the training was very positive and we were delighted that the Deputy Secretary of DJAG, Ms Miriam Kias was able to attend to present certificates to the participants.
