Common Law and Civil Law Traditions Practitioners' Guide
The goal of this Practitioner's Guide is to provide an overview of common law and civil law legal traditions for practitioners deployed to post-conflict and developing countries. INPROL will continue to issue Practitioners' Guides on specific rule of law issues or areas.
The International Network to Promote the Rule of Law (INPROL) is a global, online community of practice, comprised of some 1,700 rule of law practitioners from 80 countries and 300 organizations. Members come from a range of relevant disciplines and backgrounds. What they all have in common is the fact that they work on rule of law reforms in post-conflict and developing countries, from a policy-, practice- or research perspective. They also share a desire to learn and innovate together as a community in order to improve their rule of law knowledge and practice.
