Study Groups


After adopting the Singapore Declaration and Madrid Protocol, our members have expressed a strong desire to build on that effort and begin the process of detailing these fundamental principles to assist the global legal education community in furthering our collective mission and responsibility of educating the next generation as to the rule of law. In order to arrive at a more detailed permutation in carrying out the objectives of the Declaration and Protocol, the Association has been actively engaging scholars in each field of inquiry to discuss among themselves as to a “core” set of knowledge, skill sets and values generally and specifically required to gain masterly of the subject matter.

The next steps for the study group are to develop recommendations for curricula specific to each doctrinal area.

We invite faculty members to review the reports and provide any feedback.  Please email us at with any questions, comments, and/or suggestions.
