Background of the Pretor Business College

History of Pretor Business College dates back to 2004, when professional legal Gazette was started to be published. The Gazette was first of its kind in Ethiopia in that it focused only on legal issues, and the main objective was to create legal awareness in the entire people of Ethiopia.Federal Supreme, High and First Instance Courts Judges, Lecturers-in-Law, advocates and prosecutors participated in writing articles to it and contributed theoretical and practical materials for the publication of the Gazette.

The Editorial Board repeatedly launched conferences, where articles focused on actual legal issues were presented by legal practitioners and law lecturers in the presence of stake holders, such as Ministry of Justice representatives, Federal Courts representatives and others, such as law students, honored invited guests. The results of discussions were published in the Legal Gazette.

Later on, in 2006, the Editorial Board offered short term trainings on actual legal issues for traffic policemen, prosecutors, governmental employees, journalists, private individualsIn consideration and recognition of the contribution of such public oriented professional Gazette, British Council in Addis Ababa granted to the Editorial Board of the Gazette 200 Law text books, Legal Dictionaries, Legal Encyclopedias etc. for establishing its own Library.
