DLA Piper is teaming up with Northwestern University School of Law and Accenture to donate much needed resources to the Addis Ababa Law School in Ethiopia.
DLA Piper and Accenture lawyers will travel to Addis Ababa to teach courses in tax, company law, international arbitration and corporate crime at the law school during the spring term this year. The project will last two years.
Through New Perimeter, DLA Pipers pro bono arm, the firm will update the schools law library and launch a new law and economic development research centre.
