The Institute of Legal Practice and Development (ILPD) aims to serve as a national, regional and continental institute for:
1. Practical legal training
2. Research and development of law in three languages (English, French & Kinyarwanda). The three legal traditions (common law, civil law & customary law) meet at the Institute.
The ILPD is committed to serving the community and has already started to do so through the ‘Maison d’Access à la Justice’ (MAJ). The MAJ of Nyanza is currently housed in ILPD premises.
