The Court Monitoring Program was a unique and quite interesting experience for me. Being in a room with judges, prosecutors, lawyers, and outlaws made me realize that law is indeed intellectually challenging but also fulfilling, especially when the job is done right. However, this was not always the case. I believe that in our justice system, even after 14 of independence, progress needs to be made through legislative reforms in the rule-of-law area, in investigating, prosecuting cases, and most importantly, in transparency. Although the legal system in Kosovo is a well-functioning one, there are loops that need to be straightened. To understand the core of the law, you have to practice it and as a law student, this experience was the closest to practicing I have been. I am very thankful to have been given this opportunity, as this program made me realize why I chose Law in the first place.
Thank you to YIHR KS for this opportunity!
