The Working Groups are established by the Advisory Council and are composed of experts and practitioners; with the mandate of conducting technical work that is necessary to help the reform process. The members of the Working Groups solely serve on voluntary basis and are selected based on their subject-area expertise. Although the members of the Working Groups serve on voluntary basis, the Advisory Council takes the vetting process very serious and it is conducted with a meticulous calculations. Members of the Working Groups serve in their personal capacity and not as representatives of any organized entity.
Each Working Group, irrespective of its specific thematic areas should be able to: adopt and evaluative framework; undertake diagnostic studies based on the evaluative framework adopted; conduct consultation forums on the findings or the diagnostic studies; come up with draft recommendations and laws to address the problems identified by the diagnostic studies and finally conduct public consultations alongside the preparation of draft recommendations and law when necessary. These approaches could however, be departed from when the urgency of a given assignment justifies such departure.
While the Private International Law Working Group, Human Rights Infrastructure Working Group, Legal Education Working Group, and Sustainable Legal Reform Working Group are still under the vetting process, the following Working Groups are functional and conducting their respective works.
