Audio: ABA ROLI’s Legal Skills Center Helps Reform Legal Education in Liberia

August 2009

The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI), in cooperation with the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law at the University of Liberia, runs a legal skills center. The center is helping to improve legal education and to better prepare law students and recent graduates for their legal career. The center offers scholarships to third-year law students and coordinates the placement of scholarship graduates to work as field attorneys with partner government and non-governmental organizations during their first year of practice. In this podcast, Margaret Snoeren, ABA ROLI deputy country director, discusses the center’s establishment and impact.
