The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) is an intergovernmental organisation devoted exclusively to promoting the rule of law. IDLO works to build confidence in the justice system by supporting legal and institutional reforms and promoting good governance. IDLO improves access to justice by enabling governments to uphold human rights and encouraging people to assert them. IDLO facilitates innovative legal approaches to support sustainable development and economic opportunity and is represented at the United Nations in New York and Geneva.
Legance and IDLO have entered into a partnership to carry forward the new Investment Support Program for the Less Developed Countries. The Program relies on the pro bono contribution of law firms and other experts committed to the principle of social responsibility. The Program aims at attracting direct foreign investments, as well as improving their ability to negotiate and administer fair and sustainable investment agreements.
