Asian Law Center
Educating and Equipping Tomorrow's Justice Reformers (E2J) Project in Indonesia
UW Law will serve as the US educational partner for a recent four-year USAID award to The Asia Foundation in support of Indonesia's justice system, "Educating and Equipping Tomorrow's Justice Reformers (E2J)." The E2J program will leverage and strengthen the capacity of Indonesian institutions, particularly law schools and civil society organizations (CSOs), to cultivate and develop a generation of lawyers, public servants and scholars who are well-versed in the knowledge and skills needed to foster and sustain justice sector reform. Illustrative law school activities include curriculum development and reform, policy-oriented legal research, legal clinics, advanced legal education methodology, internship and externship opportunities within the justice sector, and international exchange and degree programs.
The Asian Law Center and the Clinical Law Program will partner with The Asia Foundation to provide training to increase capacity in these Indonesian law school activities and strengthen collaboration between law schools, CSOs and justice sector institutions, particularly in the areas of curriculum reform and clinical legal education. In addition to conducting training in Indonesia, a select number of qualified project participants will enter the UW Law LLM program. Asian Law Center Director Professor Jon Eddy and Assistant Director Alice Stokke, together with clinical law faculty Professor Kimberly Ambrose, traveled to Jakarta in June 2011 to launch the project.
