The CBA isn’t the only organization interested in promoting interest and knowledge in the rule of law. Our sister organization, the American Bar Association, started a Rule of Law Initiative.
The ABA’s ROLI (as it is called) has a robust website and even a Facebook page to visit.
For those attending the ABA’s Annual Meeting in Toronto this weekend, the ROLI has put together a notable program on the role of lawyers during times of transition: “Lessons from Mexico and the Middle East”.
It features Mr. Samir Annabi, Director of Tunisia’s Higher Institute for the Education of Lawyers, who will speak about the ongoing social and political transition in the Middle East, and Mr. Gerardo Nieto, President of Mexican Corporate Counsel Association, who will discuss Mexico’s transition to an adversarial legal system.
Attendees of the program will also get to watch a new documentary. A sneak peak is down below. Further videos can be found at the ROLI’s YouTube channel.
