Commitment by

White & Case Llp

In 2014, White & Case committed to assist the Royal Institute of Law Secretariat in establishing the first law school in the Kingdom of Bhutan. The law school will train the first generation of lawyers and judges skilled in internationally recognized legal principles and practices, including Bhutanese law and practice. It will support the judiciary, the legislature, and civil-society organizations as Bhutan's first center for research and analysis of Bhutanese law, regulations, and legal practice. To capitalize on Bhutan's competitive advantages, the law school's research will focus on alternative dispute resolution, environmental law, and sustainable development. The first class of 25 students will be admitted in the fall of 2017.
