World Justice Forum IV
On July 8-11, the World Justice Project held the World Justice Forum IV in The Hague, Netherlands. The invitation-only WJF was created to be "a global gathering designed to engage nearly 600 leaders, dignitaries, and innovators from more than 120 countries to address critical rule of law issues related to economic development, technology, supply chains, women’s rights, freedom of expression, and more."
Participants joined in formal plenaries and active breakout sessions, designed innovative ground-level rule of law programs, engaged with researchers and scholars during “workshop” hours, and networked with other leaders in the rule of law movement. Professor Christopher Kelley was invited to participate in the WJF IV, having previously attended the WJFs I and II in Vienna. Kelley teaches a Rule of Law Colloquium each Spring to J.D. and LL.M. Candidates at the University of Arkansas School of Law. He also has taught the Rule of Law at the Vytautas Magnus University Law Faculty in Kaunas, Lithuania.
