To do this, ICLAD offers an innovative mix of practical and theoretical tools to equip legislators, ministry officials, civil society participants, university faculty, and development professionals to solve social problems through effective law. Our distinctive methodology empowers these participants in the lawmaking process to transform their societies, contributing to socio-economic security and democratic governance. ICLAD's partners and alumni represent more than fifty developed, developing, transitional, and post-conflict societies with a diverse range of legal traditions, including common law, civil law, sharia, and customary law.
We are a network of legislators, ministry officials, government staff, legislation drafters, civil society participants, university faculty, and development professionals from more than 50 nations around the world dedicated to building legislative capacity to address the many underlying causes that have led to poverty and for billions of people.
