The Moscow Media Law and Policy Institute (MMLPI) is a regional NGO which was founded in the autumn of 1995. The purpose of the Institute is to assist by means of legal education and research the development of free and independent Russian mass media and to support in all possible ways the formation of a civil society in Russia . When determining its priorities, the Institute works on the principle that the rule of law plays an important role in the establishment of free and independent mass media. Therefore, in order to lay the foundations of new, committed ideals of democracy and the freedom of expression, a generation of mass media managers, judges, politicians, lawyers, researchers, and university teachers must be continuously trained to respect the rule of law and rights of the press.
