The JUSTRAC Advanced Training Program provided in-depth instruction on rule of law program design and implementation, while focusing on key issues and trends in rule of law. The Advanced Course was designed for experienced rule of law practitioners, as well as past participants in the JUSTRAC Introductory Training Program. This course assumed an understanding of basic rule of law concepts, foreign legal systems, and the roles of various USG agencies engaged in programming in the field.

The Advanced Training Program approached current rule of law topics with comprehensive sessions and interactive exercises. To promote the most effective pedagogy and real-world application, participants were tasked with pre-course readings and assigned to groups for the course’s interactive sessions.  This event focused on two key topics—anti-corruption and security sector reform—and their relationship with the rule of law.
