About

Mr. Loris serves as PROLAW's Program Director and as a Senior Lecturer. 

He comes to Loyola after a distinguished career in international service. He served for five years in Abidjan, Ivory Coast as a Regional Legal Advisor for West Africa to the US Agency for International Development (USAID), working on the legal aspects of the USAID program across West and Central Africa followed by five years in Cairo as a Legal Advisor in USAID's Egypt mission.

He then co-founded the International Development Law Institute, a Dutch foundation, which was later transformed into an inter-governmental organization, the International Development Law Organization (IDLO), by an international convention. IDLO is now a key international institution in the promotion of the rule of law in developing countries, countries in economic transition and countries recovering from violent conflict. Read More
