Stories from the Field

The CBA International Initiative Program is fortunate to have access to enormously talented and dedicated legal professionals. Their expertise and passion have shaped the success of our program and contributed to promoting rule of law and respect for human rights internationally.

Working on programs to support and strengthen the rule of law can sometimes be long and arduous. But as some of the stories from the field demonstrate, it can also be a very rewarding experience. We are grateful to our contributors for sharing their compelling stories and allowing us a glimpse into their interesting work.
