Introduction to the Rule of Law - CPD Short Course

Date: 
10 Oct 2016 - 9:30am
Host: 
The British Institute for International and Comparative Law
Course Overview

The rule of law has universal relevance for all involved in the law, justice system and legal policy. This innovative course introduces participants to using the rule of law as a practical tool for legal work in a wide range of areas both within the UK and internationally. When you attend this course, you will explore the different elements of the rule of law in concrete terms, thinking about how rule of law principles apply in a wide variety of areas, and discovering how to draw on the rule of law as an invaluable principle and framework. It will be conducted as interactive discussions, with case studies and practical examples, as applied learning.

The Bingham Centre’s leading rule of law experts deliver the sessions that are aimed not only at those in legal practice, but also NGO staff and academics who work on law reform and legal policy. The sessions use rule of law standards, such as the Venice Commission’s Rule of Law Checklist, as a touchstone and resource that translates the rule of law into a detailed set of questions and issues.
