Vacancy: Programmes Administrator
Recruiting Organisation: International Law Institute-African Centre for Legal Excellence (ILI-ACLE)
Duty Station: Kampala,
Reports to: Head of Programmes
Fifteen years ago, we established an Institute dedicated to providing affordable and high-level post-professional education to public and private sector officials in Uganda in the areas of law, governance, finance and project management to equip these professionals with practical tools to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and compete effectively with other professionals across the globe. The relevance of our approach was quickly recognized, and over the years, we began to draw public and private sector professionals engaged in development from across countries in Africa.
Today, ILI-ACLE enjoys continuing collaboration with partners such as the Open Society Initiative for East Africa in the area of International Criminal Law and with the Danida Fellowship Centre in the areas of Promoting Government Integrity and Anti-Corruption and the Human Rights-Based Approach to Development. ILI-ACLE is also pursuing partnerships with major U.S. and international law schools, including a new ABA approved collaboration with the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, to develop opportunities for more diverse and sustainable capacity building for practicing lawyers, law students and law professors. ILI-ACLE’s partnerships will continue to raise the bar for the region’s public and private sector institutions, and we strive to be ever-relevant and ready to meet the region’s evolving needs.
