About CALE

CALE assists countries in Asia to build up legal systems suitable for the process of nation building.

Since the 1990s, many socialist countries have made a transition into market economy. They need to create a new legal system to promote fair market economy, and establish the rule of law,
democracy and a system for the protection of human rights. In line with economic globalization, they have to bring their legal systems into conformance with international standards.
