About us

The Law and Justice Development Community of Practice (LJCoP) brings together practitioners engaged in regional and international law and justice initiatives, particularly those 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.

Established following an inaugural expert workshop in November 2016, 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.

The Law and Justice CoP meets 3 to 4 times a year at an annual conference and mid-year workshops. It hosted its first in-country workshop, in Jakarta, in July 2018.

The Law and Justice CoP is supported with funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) for the period 2018-21 and by contributions from the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) at the Australian National University.
