Legal reform


Promoting sound and well-functioning legal systems minimises risk and assists the development of an attractive investment climate.  The EBRD's Legal Transition Programme (LTP) contributes to the improvement of the investment climate in the EBRD regions by helping create an investor-friendly, transparent and predictable legal environment. 



Law in Transition journal

Legal reform is a unique dimension of the EBRD's work. Legal reform activities focus on the development of the legal rules, institutions and culture on which a vibrant market-oriented economy depends. Published once a year by the Legal Transition Programme, Law in Transition journal covers legal developments in the region, and by sharing lessons learned aims to stimulate debate on legal reform in transition economies.
