The LLM students engaged in 2nd O.I.L. exercise which focused on the IDLO’s 2030 agenda of Policy and Thought Leadership (Generating and Sharing Knowledge) and active participation at the UN Human Rights Council, including in the development of the first Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law Forum further establishing IDLO as a key player on rule of law and human rights discussions in Geneva and New York.
• The future benefits of the OIL include further increasing the Law School’s visibility and communicating the Law School’s strengths and unique identity abroad.
• Knowledge/understanding based on a practitioner’s insight of the Rule of Comparative Law along with the trans-national values, principles and rules which underpin Legal Pluralism, as it applies to fair effective and accountable institutions such as the IDLO, which works to to build legal and judicial institutions in countries recovering from conflict and moving towards democracy.
• Knowledge/understanding based on a practitioner’s insight of what differentiates the rule of law from the rule by law i.e. human rights, with the rule of law operationalising human rights.
• Knowledge/understanding based on a practitioner’s insight of rule of law to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources can be maintained.
