The first meeting of the Advisory Board of CRCICA/ABA ROLI Continuing Legal Education Program was held on 28 July 2016. The Board is chaired by Prof. Dr. Mohamed S. Abdel Wahab Chairperson of the Advisory Board, CRCICA/ABA ROLI CLE Program, Founding Partner, Zulficar & Partners Law Firm and enjoys the membership of elite representatives of the Egyptian Legal Community.
The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI), with funding from USAID, worked to bridge the gap between legal education and the skills legal practice demands by providing Egyptian lawyers continuing legal education opportunities since 2009.
After 6 years of success, the USAID-funded phase of the program came to an end. To ensure the sustainability of this unmatched legal service, CRCICA was chosen to administer the new phase in close collaboration with ABA ROLI. Both institutions will be supported by the advice and expertise of the members of the Advisory Board.
The Board is scheduled to meet on quarterly basis with the continuous support of Dawn Schock, Senior CLE Advisor, American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI).
