October 2010 

The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) and the United Nations Development Program worked closely with the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law in Monrovia, Liberia, to establish a computer lab that will be used to train law students and faculty in basic computer use and online legal research.

The lab, which opened at the beginning of the academic year, is equipped with 20 new workstations, a printer and projection equipment to facilitate trainings. Software to teach typing was donated by a company called Typing Master.

Courses offered in the lab include typing, introductory computer courses for those who have had limited contact with computers and two levels of Microsoft Word. The computer lab will also afford students access to online legal resources, which will build upon legal research courses and significantly increase the students’ ability to conduct legal research and to gather legal information. The lab builds upon previous ABA ROLI contributions to strengthen the country’s only law school.
