Then MENA Commercial law strengthening project is a two year regional program (2008-2010) that is being implemented in Lebanon, Tunisia, Yemen and UAE, by the Arab Center for the Rule of Law and Integrity (ACRLI) in cooperation with the middle east partnership initiative (MEPI).

The project aimed at raising awareness on key commercial legal issues and its effects on economic growth, as well as building capacity to increase efficient and effective utilization of commercial dispute resolution mechanisms.
The project also includes supporting private-sector participations in policy-making and strengthening public-private networking and partnerships to support commercial law reform.

The project primarily targets members of the legal community (lawyers, judges, and academicians), business leaders and professional associations & syndicates in view of actively involving them with policymakers and concerned government practitioners in a result-oriented policy dialogue.

ACRLI is posting on its website "The compendium", a web-based compendium in Arabic and English; it includes commercial laws, regulations, court judgments, doctrines and other legal resources. The compendium also includes information and resources on business advocacy and international best practices, among other useful tools for commercial law practitioners in the region. Read more...
