Capacity-Building in Interactive Teaching Methodologies in Tunisia – closed

 Responsible Member: American Bar Association Rule Of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI)

We supported Tunisian justice sector institutions to uphold their mandate and helped ensure equal access to justice by training new and practicing Tunisian Lawyers in interactive teaching techniques, with a focus on criminal procedure, human rights and ethics.

Aiming to increase the capacity of the organised legal profession to effectively train new and practicing lawyers, ABA ROLI delivered capacity-building on interactive teaching techniques for legal educators of the Tunisian Lawyers’ Institute, the Tunisian Bar Association and the Tunisian Young Lawyers’ Association.

Through capacity-building ininteractive teaching methodology, we aimed to promote a more dynamic learning environment that will better prepare lawyers to meet their clients’ needs throughout their careers. Some of the methods used are role play, student teaching and explaining as well as the use of realistic documents and videos

Together with national partners, ABA ROLI produced training manuals to be distributed in hard copy as well as electronically for use in future trainings. The manuals highlighted how interactive methods of teaching are particularly suited for teaching skills that protect the rights of clients in court.
