Access to Credit

Access to credit for micro and small and medium-sized businesses is an essential element of sustainable economic development. The Center has been a leader in expanding access to credit through the reform of secured lending laws, creation of electronic registries and training in various geographies.

Commercial Law Reform & Best Business and Trade Practices

The Center was founded on the principle that “law is about people” and that commercial law should create an environment in which business and entrepreneurship thrive. We have worked on a wide range of projects designed to improve the business enabling environment of developing countries.

Promotion of Alternative Dispute Resolution

Disputes are inevitable in business. An essential element of a business-enabling environment is dispute resolution mechanisms that are fair, affordable, predictable and efficient. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options such as arbitration and mediation supplement the court system with streamlined alternatives for resolving contract disputes.

Education & Training

Consistent with a research approach that relates commercial law to its economic development purposes as well as its socioeconomic context, the Center has a robust training methodology that has successfully trained judges in Mexico and Central America, as well as lawyers, administrative and customs officials, and registry officials.
