Global Forum on Law Justice and Development
Generating Innovative Legal Solutions to Development Challenges

The Law and Development Institute, in collaboration with Emory University Master’s in Development Practice Program, offers the Law and Development Program (LDP), a short-term online training course in law and development leading to the Diploma or the Certificate in Law and Development at the election of registrants. The LDP is designed for government officials from both developing and developed countries, professionals from international organizations and NGOs, lawyers, consultants, and students interested in learning the role of law, legal frameworks, and institutions (LFIs) for economic development.
Lex:lead sponsors its interns who have won the Lex:lead scholarship to work with Global Forum members for short period of time. This year, fifteen students have won this scholarship and are interested by this unique partnership. The group would like to hear from Global Forum partners able to use the services of a Lex:lead law student in its work this year in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia.

Although the Paris Agreement and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) submissions are significant milestones, the challenge going forward will be turning the plans and goals set in NDCs into concrete actions. Countries are at different stages of planning for NDCs implementation and coherence with the domestic legal and policy frameworks will be critical to success or failure. This workshop aims to explore the legal aspects of NDCs, the challenges of their implementation and to present the case studies of the Brazilian and Mexican NDCs versus the policy and legal framework in their energy sectors.
