The ASEAN Law Academy 2018 is a seven-day intensive programme based on CIL’s ASEAN Integration through Law book series and is specifically designed with the ASEAN policy maker in mind. The Academy aims to support policy makers in their work in deepening the ASEAN rules–based implementation processes, especially in the ASEAN Economic Community, for the economic development and prosperity of the region.

The Academy is taught in a collaborative and practice-based learning environment by experienced teachers from academia and practice. The Academy will cover a range of topics, including enhancing of the administration of ASEAN rules, and laws and policies in public bureaucracies; laws regulating non-tariff barriers, rules of origin, and investments in the ASEAN Economic Community; ASEAN’s external trade and political relations; and modalities of dispute settlement in ASEAN.

Government officials from the ten ASEAN member states, ASEAN Dialogue Partners and officials from the ASEAN Secretariat are invited to participate in the Academy. Participants are expected to engage in the discussions to maximise learning. Interested candidates should send in a statement of interest of not more than 200 words and their curriculum vitae.
