Loyola's Rule of Law for Development Program is an excellent option for anyone in the peace and development field. When I started PROLAW, under a collaboration with my employing organization, the African Union Commission (AU), I was among the first to undertake the PROLAW MJ option, for non-lawyers. In my AU role, I work with countries either in fragile states or transitioning from conflict. As we all know, in most situations of violent crisis, the rule of law is usually absent. I took this opportunity to attend PROLAW, given to me by the AU, to build my capacity to work and help these countries in different stages of fragility. As a staff member of the Crisis Management and Post-conflict Reconstruction Development Division, having the knowledge and skill set given to us by PROLAW is not only key to enable me deliver on my mandate, it also provides me an opportunity to do the work and get it right for the Commission and the citizens of our States as beneficiaries. The program is effectively designed to give you all the tools you need to be successful in the peace and development field as a professional. Thank you PROLAW.
