Our mission as lawyers working within SCIEL is to focus on challenges and opportunities for legal reform and development. We aim to seek preventative and precautionary solutions, as well as bringing our legal skills to bear on impactful research for the efficient operation of justice.

SCIEL aims to rise to these challenges; to be adaptable and swift-thinking; and to act with speed, applying the analytical and practical skills of lawyers to emerging legal problems and their prevention.
