On March 25, 2007, in Wattaya, Oman, the Rule of Law Initiative conducted a workshop for law professors at the Oman College of Law. Judge Ernest Borunda, retired from the San Diego Superior Court and currently working on a legal training project in Macedonia, led the workshop. Judge Borunda was in Oman to help with the development of training programs for professors, judges and lawyers. Judge Borunda worked with professors on their teaching techniques and demonstrated interactive teaching methods.

The workshop was part of the Oman College of Law's continuing effort to develop a new curriculum to enhance the practical skills of its graduates. The ABA has been assisting with the establishment of legal clinics and other practical skills education for students at the College of Law, which is the only institution providing legal education in Oman. Previous trainings have addressed innovations in legal education, including interactive teaching techniques.
