The NITA Foundation’s International Rule of Law and Access to Justice Fund along with dedicated funds from the NITA Board of Trustees, helps support NITA’s international programming efforts. The programs supported must be part of a national or regional purpose of promoting the rule of law or of promoting access to justice for persons denied such access. These programs are held by a wide variety of individuals and organizations such as Lawyers Without Borders, cooperative agreements between local foreign bar associations and United States bar associations, individual lawyers and law firms in the United States, and other organizations.
Involved organizations request support in areas such as faculty travel, expenses, program development, and content. Many of NITA’s international programs are in alliance with Lawyers Without Borders in countries such as Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. Other countries include Ireland and Japan.
