Launch Event Announcement: World Justice Project Rule of Law Index 2015

The World Justice Project was founded by William H. Neukom in 2006 as a presidential initiative of the American Bar Association (ABA), and with the initial support of 21 other strategic partners, the World Justice Project transitioned into an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2009. Its offices are located in Washington, DC, and Seattle, WA, USA. (here)  WJP produces a Rule of Law Index that "offers a detailed, multidimensional view of the extent to which countries adhere to the rule of law in practice, and is the most comprehensive index of its kind." (WJP Rule of Law Index 2015).  The The Rule of Law Index 2014 Report may be accessed HERE.

WJP will launch the new WJP Rule of Law Index 2015 on June 2, 2015.
