Impact Assessment of the Moldovan Legal Aid Law

The legal aid law of Moldova was enacted in 2008. This study, written in 2011, analyzes the impact of the law and makes recommendations for further policy improvements.

The main purpose of the assessment is to obtain an understanding of the impact the legal aid law and its institutions on access to legal aid in criminal cases, the extent to which the legal aid law has achieved its statutory goals and the challenges that the new legal aid system is still facing. The assessment was carried out by Martin Gramatikov, expert with significant experience in reforming the legal aid system in Bulgaria and conducting access to justice research in a number of countries, and Nadejda Hriptievschi, a Moldovan lawyer, who has been collaborating with the Soros Foundation – Moldova since 2003 on the projects related to the legal aid reform in Moldova. She has been engaged with legal aid reforms in Bulgaria, Georgia, Lithuania, Mongolia and Ukraine.
