International Rule of Law Consortium

Host Organization Description

The International Rule of Law Consortium (IROLC) is a group of legal communities working together to develop legal institutions and the rule of law in both the United States and Russia. Each community is composed of volunteer legal professionals from an American state who have partnered with professionals from a Russian region. IROLC improves the capacity of local Russian legal institutions to implement reform. The organization has been instrumental in the development of bar associations and judicial and lawyer education programs. It has provided effective training in the use of technology, initiated the adoption of alternative dispute resolution methods, and trained legal professionals to implement reforms effectively and to bring justice to citizens.
