USAID has been very happy to partner with the American Bar Association and the Addis Ababa University Law School in the development and publication of five legal textbooks authored by Ethiopian legal experts. I am especially proud of this collaboration since this is the first set of textbooks to be revised in 40 years. This is a remarkable and commendable achievement.
At a ceremony at the Addis Ababa University on September 14, 2012, USAID Ethiopia and its partners in the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative celebrated the publishing of five law textbooks developed in cooperation with faculty of the law schools at Addis Ababa University (AAU) and Saint Mary's College.
