On 2-31 December 2018 CRCICA held the Basic Legal Skills Course under the CRCICA/ABA Distinguished Lawyers CLE Program. This program started in October 2016 as a continuation of the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ROLI)’s CLE scheme in Egypt, which ran under the US AID funds from 2009 until September 2016.
7 qualified trainers delivered the modules of the course, namely: client interviewing, legal analysis, legal writing, negotiation, contract drafting, oral advocacy and arbitration. 9 volunteering arbitrators ran the Arbitration Moot organized at the end of the course. Attendees were junior practicing lawyers, contract administrators, contract coordinators, legal researchers, legal interns, and fresh graduates.
