Knowledge Center



GcilA’s Contributions to the Development of International Legal Expertise

GcilA has made a unique effort to organize an integrated Knowledge Center addressing the most important issues in each area of practice by aggregating the experience of GcilA practitioners on a numerous and diverse questions which mirror the diversity of their expertise.

The Knowledge Centre outcome is the result of several steps all essential for delivering a new level of operational and often innovative knowledge. It is much more than a simple database or traditional legal resource center. The starting point is for GcilA practitioners to identify relevant information in addition to their own expertise, then to develop a contextual approach permitting to prioritize information before summarizing the same. They further exchange with stakeholders, industry and peers before formulating best practices. Those best practices are designed in such a way that the resulting ‘knowledge’ is easy to understand and use in practice.

The GcilA Knowledge Center is firstly designed for being a living platform internal to GcilA for information which are not in the public domain or which contain some proprietary information. When this is not the situation, the headings of the issues being part of the GcilA Knowledge Center are published on the GiclA website. Several of the key publications, conference papers and Powerpoints in each of GcilA’s area of practice can be downloaded by clicking on the red title. For the documents which cannot be downloaded, some of them can be made available upon request and under certain conditions.
