Final conference international NUFFIC project Strengthening Legal Education in Eastern Indonesia (SLEEI) on 28-29 March in Mataram, Lombok
Leiden University’s Van Vollenhoven Institute has cooperated for nearly three years in the SLEEI project with Indonesian partners. Next week SLEEI will present its main results on 28 March, including a course development handbook, and several teaching guides written by local law lecturers trained in SLEEI. On 29 March old and new interested law faculties will discuss the ways to continue cooperation.
SLEEI aims at strengthening legal education, which is a crucial part of maintaining the rule of law in the country. Many Indonesian citizens cannot realise their rights and continue to face a lack of legal certainty: It is often unclear what laws apply in particular situations and it is hard to predict how the courts or the government will interpret them. SLEEI has focused on course development and teaching methods that will produce graduates who master key legal skills required by the labour market, and who are aware of the ethical and inequality/gender issues involved in the problems they address.
The project is a collaboration between four law faculties in Eastern Indonesia (Ambon, Kupang, Waingapu, Mataram), two law faculties on Java (UGM and Jentera), one in the Netherlands (VVI Leiden), and the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT).
