The fund aims to promote professional growth and support lawyers interested in international law, make alternative means of creating legal education, civic education, the educational system of international law and to promote the establishment of the modern standards of international law in Georgia.
The Levan Alexidze International Law Moot Court Competition – Edition II 2020 – is being launched on 5 July, the day of birth of the great Professor and statesman Levan Alexidze, the foremost authority in the field of international law in Georgia, who was instrumental in the restoration of the independence of Georgia and in ensuring in its Constitutional framework that the legislation of Georgia shall comply with the universally recognized principles and norms of International Law, stressing that an international treaty ratified or acceded to by Georgia shall take precedence over domestic normative acts unless it comes into conflict with the Constitution or the Constitutional Agreement of Georgia.
To celebrate Levan Alexidze’s life in continuous remembrance of his ground-breaking efforts to establish International Law as a firm pillar of Georgia’s legal framework, the Levan Alexidze Foundation has resolved that the 5th of July be designated henceforth as International Law Day in Georgia.
