The Academy’s Fall 2018 Collaborative in Uganda was a tremendous success. An extraordinary delegation of fellows and jurists were assembled to provide instruction to about 40 Ugandan Magistrate Judges. Instruction on best practices in trial management and ADR, rules changes, electronic access to case law and judgment writing were covered over the week. For the training, the IATL partnered with several judicial organizations, which sent judges: National Judicial College (U.S.); National Judicial Institute (Canada); and the Irish Rule of Law International (Ireland).
Also in Fall 2018, an IATL delegation traveled to Mexico and met with the Presidents of Mexico's three leading bar associations. We reached an agreement between all four organizations to advance the Rule of Law, protect human rights, fight human trafficking, encourage restorative justice and further best practices in the administration of Justice around the world.
The Academy is planning two collaboratives in 2019. An Argentina collaborative is anticipated for August 2019. A Chile collaborative is being planned for November 2019. We look forward to continuing our efforts to improve the administration of justice and extend the Rule of Law.
