Educating and Equipping Tomorrow’s Justice Sector Reformers (E2J)

Brief Overview

E2J Program is a project funded by USAID and implemented by The Asia Foundation and Kemitraan has the goals to develop a generation of lawyers, public servants and scholars who are well-versed in the knowledge and skills needed to sustain justice sector reforms by strengthening the capacity of key Indonesian institutions – particularly law schools and CSOs. C4J’s objective is sustaining and deepening reforms in key justice sector institutions such as the Supreme Court and the Attorney General’s Office.

There are two primary components included in E2J, first, giving an assistance to Indonesian Law Schools: E2J will strengthen the capacity of higher education institutions to provide legal education, research and service by supporting a more practice-oriented teaching of law, increasing and improving research on justice sector practice and reform, enhancing incentives for quality law graduates to pursue public service and work in the justice sector, as well as working to institutionalize mechanisms for collaboration among law schools, CSOs and justice sector institutions. Second is giving assistance to Civil Society Organizations: E2J will strengthen the capacity of CSOs to support, advocate and monitor justice sector reform by assisting CSOs to strengthen their intellectual leadership and research programs, expanding and institutionalizing collaboration with law schools in Indonesia and abroad, improving the resource development, financial planning and financial management capacities of select CSOs, and enhancing the capacities of select CSOs to advocate for/monitor justice sector reform.
