Lawyers from Tajikistan Prepare to Strengthen Rule of Law through Training | IREX – Civil Society, Education and Media Development

Twelve lawyers from Tajikistan became the first participants of a new five-month U.S.-based training program that will enable them to make lasting positive changes to their country’s legal system. Through the Legal Education and Development Short-Term English Program (LEAD STEP), these individuals are cultivating skills in English and knowledge of comparative law that they will use to shape the dynamic legal landscape in Tajikistan, strengthen the rule of law, and foster ties with the international legal community.

LEAD STEP is an innovative program developed by IREX and the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) to provide lawyers from Tajikistan with the opportunity to study comparative law. By integrating intensive English language study with a strong focus on legal writing and the study of American law, the program will allow a diverse group of young professionals the chance to build core skills that will position them to strengthen legal culture in their communities and build relationships with legal colleagues outside of Tajikistan.
