Rule of Law

Our people and core business operations are dedicated to advancing the rule of law around the world.

Business for the Rule of Law (B4ROL)

The United Nations Global Compact, with support from LexisNexis, has launched a new effort, Business for the Rule of Law, to engage the business community and legal profession in advancing the rule of law, good governance and corporate sustainability. In 2013, LexisNexis presented the Global Rule of Law Business Principles to the Secretary-General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon, to join forces and develop the B4ROL effort. Watch Video.

Australian Human Rights Commission Partnership

LexisNexis has partnered with the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) to develop RightsApp, a mobile application that searches international human rights conventions and declarations. In addition LexisNexis staff worked with the AHRC to update its free, online publication Federal Discrimination Law to help enable individuals to enforce their rights.

Collaboration with the Australian Pro Bono Centre

Launched two new publications that offer guidance on how to build and manage a pro bono program in a law firm and how to develop partnerships for delivering pro bono legal services in Australia.

National Association of Community Legal Centres Partnership

LexisNexis and the National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLC) have entered into a partnership to promote the rule of law in Australia by providing high quality online legal resources to over 180 Community Legal Centres operating across Australia and support better access to justice for the 200,000+ disadvantaged clients they assist every year.

Advancing Together

Advancing Together is a free bi-annual publication that brings together views and insights from thought leaders in the legal sphere, delving into current affairs and developments that impact the advancement, and in some cases the erosion, of the rule of law in Asia Pacific.
