Law reform and legal education in Myanmar

UNSW Law has a strong record of collaboration and engagement on a wide range of issues related to law reform and legal education in Myanmar. The Australia Myanmar Constitutional Democracy Project, involving Professor Martin Krygier, Professor Theunis Roux and Dr Melissa Crouch, has trained over 600 lawyers, judges, members of parliament and civil society activists in constitutional literacy workshops since 2013. Melissa and Theunis are also partnering with the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance to provide workshops on constitution-making and natural resource governance in Myanmar. These workshops are a critical forum for discussion and debate on constitutional reform. 

In a separate project, Melissa and Emma Dunlop are delivering a major program on professional legal education in commercial and corporate law for lawyers, judges and officers of the Attorney General's Office, funded by the Asian Development Bank in Myanmar.
