Founded in 1997 along with Law Department, the Legal Resource Center (LRC) aims to address the needs of a developing legal environment, emphasizing outreach, access to up-to-date information, community service, and economic development as the cornerstone of its scholarly/research mission.  Being a clearinghouse for international best practices is one of the center’s primary goals, consistent with the needs of the community, interests of the faculty, and mission of the university.

The LRC is an integral part of the AUA LL.M. program.  They work hand-in-hand to promote international standards in legal education and research with a focus on law reform, legal-education reform, and legal information dissemination through public events and online resources. An important public service component to the LRC includes organizing seminars and conferences on important and current legal issues.
