International Legal Resource Center
ABA-UNDP International Legal Resource Center (ILRC)
740 15th Street, NW
The ILRC is a joint project between the American Bar Association (ABA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The ILRC assists UNDP representative offices around the world to identify candidates to provide legal advice and training, primarily on a pro bono basis, in legal institution-building, judicial reform, drafting of legislation, and other law-related areas. Housed in the ABA Section of International Law since its inception in February 2000, the ILRC has received and responded to increasing numbers of requests for legal expertise and information from UNDP Country Offices in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and the CEE and CIS region. The ILRC also serves as a depository of relevant rule of law and governance documents and other materials which are available to legal experts, UNDP staff, government officials, and others involved in UNDP-sponsored programmes. In addition, the ILRC is available for specialized assistance to UNDP Offices upon request.
