The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) is to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the United States-based National Centre for State Courts (NCSC).

The MOU, which is scheduled to be signed during a special ceremony in Trinidad and Tobago tomorrow, forms part of the CCJ’s efforts to improve the administration of justice in the Caribbean.

In a statement released yesterday, the CCJ said the MOU will facilitate cooperation in a mutual effort to implement justice sector reforms and enhance the administration of justice for the Caribbean region.

It says the agreement will also allow for cooperation with the NCSC to increase the capacity of the CCJ to design and implement justice reform programmes.

The NCSC has provided technical assistance, training and technology to improve the justice system across the United States and more than 30 countries throughout the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe.
