About us

The Law and Justice Development Community of Practice (LJCoP) brings together practitioners engaged in regional and international law and justice initiatives funded by Australia. Members are professionals working across government, research institutions, non-governmental organisations and the private sector who design, fund, implement and research projects in the broad field of law and justice development.

The Community of Practice is a platform to connect local and international practitioners within Australia and the Asia Pacific -- to share ideas, learn from professional peers, make new connections and explore opportunities to collaborate.

It was established following an inaugural expert workshop in November 2016 and will aim to meet three times throughout 2017 and 2018.

The Community of Practice was initiated by Co-Convenor Lisa Denney and builds on her experience of establishing a similar network with the Overseas Development Institute in the UK. It is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) at The Australian National University
