Project LAO/031 - Promotion of the rule of law and legal teaching and training support programme - is a 5-year, 5M EUR bilateral cooperation programme supported by the governments of Luxembourg and Lao PDR and focused on i) strengthening the enabling environment for access to justice and ii) (continued) strengthening of the individual, organisational and institutional capacity of legal education and training in Lao PDR. The main beneficiaries of the project are legal practitioners and civil servants active in the legal sector, civil servants of the Ministry of Justice, and academic staff, notably of the Faculty of Law and Political Science of Vientiane and the Faculty of Law and Administration of Champassak.
Project LAO/031 is now more than halfway through implementation, the mid-term review of the project is ongoing and initial indications are that the project is well on track to achieving its key targets and results. Therefore, a new Chief Technical Adviser (CTA) is being sought to build on existing achievements and results, implement and monitor recommendations of the mid-term review and facilitate the roll-out of remaining activities until the end of project.
