LexisNexis has partnered with United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) on several endeavors serving to shape the business role in achieving peace, justice and strong institutions. One early partnership was sparked by the Business for the Rule of Law (B4ROL) Principles which became the basis for the B4ROL Framework led by UNGC.
LexisNexis is now partnering with the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA), a legal professional organization composed of around two million lawyers from more than 120 countries. This partnership will facilitate the continuing education of lawyers and other legal professionals, and support the rule of law through a joint award program and content publishing. UIA has established a Rule of Law Award established in partnership with LexisNexis to recognize individuals who have undertaken extraordinary steps to advance the rule of law. In 2018, the Rule of Law Award was presented to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her ongoing and passionate work to advance the rule of law.
