The Rule of Law for All

Effective rule of law helps reduce corruption, improve public health, enhance education, alleviate poverty, and protect people from injustices large and small. That’s why strengthening the rule of law is a major goal of governments, businesses, scholars, and civil society organizations worldwide—and why the World Justice Forum has become a significant event on the world’s stage.

Influencers, Experts, and Change Agents

Forum attendees and delegations are proactively cultivated from civil society, government, corporate and academic circles of influence worldwide. Past attendees have included notable change agents, senior executives, ministers and heads of state, high court justices, thought leaders and researchers, military officers, and other leading lights from the private and public sectors.

Results-Oriented Agenda

Unlike most conferences, the Forum calls on participants to develop practical, specific follow-up activities to promote and strengthen the rule of law. In addition to plenary conversations and networking opportunities, Forum participants work together in break-out sessions to create pilot programs and action plans. 

Key Issues

The rule of law is essential to everyone, not only lawyers and judges. The WJP curates topics that reflect current, relevant issues affecting economic, political, and human development worldwide. Past discussions have focused on topics ranging from supply chain management and environmental governance to technology access and combating human trafficking.
