The LIV sent a letter of congratulations to the recently established Independent Lawyers’ Association of Myanmar offering to support the Association through its development and growth as a legal organisation.

The Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) would like to offer our congratulations on the formation of Independent Lawyers' Association of Myanmar (ILAM). We are very pleased to hear of this historic development in Myanmar's legal system, and note that this marks an important step forward in the development of the rule of law in Myanmar.

The LIV would like to extend an offer to support ILAM through its development and growth as a legal organisation.

What is the Law Institute of Victoria?

The LIV is the peak representative body of legal professionals in Victoria, Australia and represents more than 19,000 lawyers. It is one of the constituent bodies of the Law Council of Australia and was established over 150 year ago.

The LIV promotes justice for all, advancing social and public welfare in the operation of the courts and legal system as well as advancing education and public confidence both in the legal profession and in the processes by which the law is made and administered.

One of the key aims of the LIV is to advance justice and fairness by advocating for reform on issues impacting the profession and the community across a number of policy areas. LIV's advocacy is led by its Committee members who come from a wide range of legal backgrounds. You can find out more about LIV's Committees and advocacy work on the LIV website: http://www.liv.asn.au. An example of the LIV's advocacy work is our support for the development of a Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities in Victoria which sets out the basic rights, freedoms and responsibilities of all people in Victoria, and which has now been in force for over 8 years.
