The Mutual Legal Assistance Request Writer Tool (MLA Tool) was developed
by UNODC to assist criminal justice practitioners in drafting expeditiously MLA requests, thereby enhancing cooperation between
States and accelerating responses to such requests. In its revised and expanded version, the Tool is an HTML-based stand-alone
application, capable of running on all devices. It provides guidance to practitioners through each step of the drafting process
and further helps them draft MLA requests by filling in all appropriate and relevant information.
