The Legal Transition Programme (LTP) is the EBRD’s initiative to contribute to the improvement of the investment climate in the Bank’s countries of operations by helping create an investor-friendly, transparent and predictable legal environment. LTP activities focus on the development of legal rules and the establishment of the legal institutions and culture on which a vibrant market-oriented economy depends.
The Legal Transition Programme engages in:
The Legal Transition Programme is part of the EBRD's Office of the General Counsel. The team manages the EBRD’s legal reform work and related legal technical assistance projects. It has a specialised Financial Law Unit and also works closely with the Bank's project-focused lawyers to identify and overcome legal impediments to investments.
Donor grants from the EBRD's shareholders and other official bodies are the programme's primary funding source. In addition, lawyers and other professionals in private practice and in academia provide their services at a discounted rate or on a pro bono basis. The programme accepts practical support such as fellowship funding, training facilities and event publicity.
The EBRD has been written about and been referred to in several books and journals over the years.
In the book entitled "Bankrupt: Global Lawmaking and System Financial Crisis" (Terence Halliday and Bruce Carruthers. Stanford University Press, 2009), the following is said of the EBRD;
"Of all the IFIs, the EBRD during the development of the Legal Transition Programme has been strongly influenced by interdisciplinary scholarship, most notably, sociolegal studies, development economics, law and development and institutional economics. The result is an unusually nuanced approach to the fundamental tension between global uniformity and national particularities that stalks all IFI initiatives".
EBRD staff have also written about issues relating to freedom of information and information access. This is an area of increasing relevance to the bank's activities.
