IMPACT Justice has drafted a gender-sensitive Model Legal Profession Bill with a revised Code of Ethics, disciplinary and accounting procedures and provisions for continuing legal professional development (“CLPD”).

In addition, between March 2014 and March 2019, the Project has worked throughout the region to promote the implementation of mandatory systems of CLPD for attorneys-at-law similar to what obtains in Jamaica. In fact, by the end of March 2019, IMPACT Justice had hosted 17 sensitizations in partnership with Bar Associations in the region with a resultant 689 attorneys-at-law (418 females/271 males) being sensitized to the benefits of CLPD.

In 2018, the Project completed its final report on a survey of legal education in the region which has been circulated to governments and the Council of Legal Education to inform policy making.
