Dla Piper Llp, New Perimeter

In 2012, New Perimeter, a non-profit organization established by global law firm DLA Piper, committed to deliver innovative, practical, skills-based legal training to 800 students and government officials in East Africa. Recognizing that skilled legal and judicial sectors play a central role in the promotion of adherence to the rule of law and the development of a country's social, economic, and political structures, New Perimeter supports legal education around the world. In support of its commitment to East Africa, New Perimeter will recruit teams of lawyers from across DLA Piper's global offices to help train and mentor practicing lawyers and law students in Zambia, Tanzania, and Kenya over a three-year period. Maximizing the available resources, New Perimeter will help increase the local capacity of lawyers in the target countries.
