From December 6-13, 2011, ILAC conducted a pre-assessment mission to South Sudan. The pre-assessment team consisted of:
- William Meyer, Chair of ILAC
- Rodger Chongwe, Member, ILAC Executive Committee
- Kalevi Tervanen, Finnish Bar Association
The goal of this mission was to preliminarily assess the current state of development of South Sudanese legal institutions, together with the assistance currently being provided to those institutions. The pre-assessment team met with representatives of the South Sudanese government, judiciary, Bar and civil society, as well as members of the international community in South Sudan, to determine if an ILAC needs assessment mission would be appropriate.
