Law in Rwanda
In June 2015, Professor Andrea Boggio visited Kigali, Rwanda, where he facilitated a two-week workshop on Negotiation, Drafting and Interpretation of Contracts. The workshop was organized by the International Law Institute - African Centre for Legal Excellence, an NGO based in Kampala, Uganda, devoted to provide continuing professional legal education in subjects broadly related to economic development and international commercial relations. The organization is affiliated with the International Law Institute (ILI), which is based in Washington, DC and has been working towards rule of law reform across the developing world since 1955.
The goal of the workshop was to strengthen participants’ understanding of the legal language of contracts and develops practical skills to effectively analyze, draft, negotiate and manage contracts. Participants were all lawyers working for the governments of Uganda and Kenya.
During his visit, Professor Boggio was able to learn about the history of the country (in particular by visiting the Kigali Genocide Memorial), to learn about the future of legal publishing and legal research by meeting with representatives of LexisNexis, and catch up with Bryant alumnus and Rwanda native Randa Rugangazi, who works at PwC in Kigali.
