The LLM students engaged in an O.I.L exercise which focused on the IDLO’s 2030 agenda to promote the rule of law as a key enabler of Africa’s sustainable development across all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), through its engagement with the UN General Assembly as part of an Africa Initiative programme, which embraced Kenya, Liberia, Mali and South Sudan.
• The future benefits of the OIL include 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 build legal and judicial institutions in countries recovering from conflict and moving towards democracy.
• Knowledge/understanding based on a practitioner’s insight of the rule of law, combining research and analysis grounded in operational experience with its advocacy and multi-stakeholder outreach.
• Knowledge/understanding based on a practitioner’s insight of legal solutions for sustainable development and economic opportunity, promoting fair and sustainable development outcomes
