The Bar Council of England and Wales thanks IADRU for its continued support with the planning and execution of this visit to Kenya.

Established in 2019, IADRU complements 3VB’s international practice by providing pro bono legal capacity in developed and emerging markets through trainings, workshops, conferences, and insights. The program’s strategy is aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, with particular focus on gender equality, rule of law, justice, and supporting strong institutions.

The primary goal is to reinforce the drive for peace, justice, and strong institutions, including promoting the rule of law and access to justice in a self-sustained way on an international stage. The unit’s offering is complementary to Goal 16 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and includes advice, drafting services, and advocacy.

IADRU also helps with other practical issues, including the identification of arbitrators, consultation services for projects, and assistance with negotiations.
