The Philippine Association of Law Schools is an association of all law schools in the Philippines. It is a primary driving force to uplift the standards of legal education in the Philippines.

The International Association of Law Schools is a private, non-political, non-profit, volunteer, collaborative, learned society dedicated to serving the world wide legal education community. It is an association of more than 160 law schools and departments from over 55 countries representing more than 7,500 law faculty members. Our primary mission is the improvement of legal education throughout the world. The idea for an international association of law schools emerged from several meetings of legal educators from around the world who recognized the growing inter-relationship of norms from transnational legal systems.

The IUCN Academy of Environmental Law is an international network of approximately 200 environmental law faculties and research centres from 60 countries. It is uniquely positioned in building environmental law education capacity and promoting the conceptual development of environmental law.

The Academy recognizes that environmental legal education is a vital contributor to the rule of law and to robust environmental governance essential for sustainable development and can be achieved through:

  • Development and delivery of programs aimed at building university teaching capacity in environmental law;
  • Generation of global research programs with major partners to feed into national and international environmental law and policy agendas; and
  • Convening major international conferences and exchange through the efforts of its Secretariat and its electronic communications.

As countries seek to achieve global environmental sustainability and to increase their capacity for the development and implementation of international and national environmental law, the IUCN Academy can draw on its international resources to help achieve the following:

  • Build individual talent and institutional capacity in environmental law and policy as a vital contributor to effective international environmental governance
  • Advance understanding of some of the most pressing environmental law and governance issues and propose strategies to address these issues from a legal perspective
  • Contribute to developing new legal mechanisms to meet urgent demands for sound global, regional and national governance


Oceana is an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based policy campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.

In the Philippines, Oceana intends to support the government in its goal to promote national policies that protect the Philippines’ vast marine resources. We will use the law to ensure that fish and fishers receive the protections they deserve. We will offer technical expertise to aid the government in its goal of establishing sustainable catch limits, reducing discards and protecting spawning habitat. We also plan to carry out scientific expeditions to educate the public about the importance of healthy oceans and the role they play in the economy of the Philippines by providing food and jobs. Ultimately, our goal is to work to ensure that the Philippines achieve sustainable fisheries and healthy oceans for the benefit of all Filipinos.

The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung is a political foundation that is active nationwide. Its overseas offices serve more than 200 projects in over 120 countries worldwide. The headquarters are in Sankt Augustin near Bonn and Berlin, where it opened a new event house, the Academy, in 1998.
Konrad Adenauer and his principles are guidelines, mission and commitment for us. The foundation has been carrying the name of the first Federal Chancellor since 1964; it emerged from the “Society for Christian Democratic Education Work”, founded in 1955.
National and international, we promote peace, freedom and justice through political education. The consolidation of democracy, the promotion of European integration, the intensification of transatlantic relations and development cooperation are our particular concerns.
As a think tank and consulting agency, we develop scientific foundations and current analyzes in a forward-looking way for political action. The Foundation’s academy in Berlin is the forum for dialogue on future-relevant issues between politics, business, church, society and science.
