Benefactors: The PROLAW program has received financial support from governments, foundations, organizations, large corporations and individuals. Among these donors are the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United States Department of State, the governments of Indonesia, Germany and Uganda, AT&T, Microsoft, and Mr. Barry McCabe. 

Partnership Agreements: Through PROLAW the School of Law has entered into milestone partnership agreements with two regional organizations, the African Union (AU) and the Organization of American States (OAS). Under these agreements, Loyola uses the PROLAW program to strengthen those organizations’ capacities to promote the rule of law in their regions. The two agreements represent a recognition of the significant value that practical preparation for rule of law work can have in the pursuit of international development objectives. Loyola has to date educated 26 AU professionals that have participated in the PROLAW program, and more than 80 AU staff members have been trained in rule of law seminars at the AU headquarters in Addis Abeba.
