Rwanda Legal Development Project

The Rwanda Legal Development Project (RLDP) is a collaboration between SLS, the Rwanda Law Reform Commission, and the University of Rwanda.

In partnership with the University of Rwanda’s Law Faculty, RLDP team members research and author law and policy materials for use by the Rwanda Law Reform Commission. The Law Reform Commission is responsible for updating and harmonizing Rwandan legislation to enhance the predictability and fairness of judicial decisions nationwide. As such, RLDP’s first research project relates to methods of statutory interpretation utilized by Rwandan judges and in comparable jurisdictions.
