CAIL is dedicated to advocating for the rule of law and improving the quality of justice by providing continuing education to lawyers and law enforcement officials in the United States and throughout the world.
Since its founding, CAIL’s educational institutes have established internationally recognized forums and educational programming addressing law enforcement administration, energy law, international and comparative law, transnational arbitration, law and technology, criminal justice, and other relevant topics.
Our focus on advancing the rule of law includes criminal justice programming like our Actual Innocence programs focus on systemic problems in the justice system with an audience that typically includes judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and law enforcement officials. CAIL and its Institutes are nonpartisan and do not take a stance on policies. Some of our programs address the unique challenges surrounding capital murder cases and ensure that prosecutors and defense counsel are adequately prepared.
