Research is instrumental in the effort to attain multifaceted development. These days one can witness the proliferation of research engagement in Ethiopia. However, critics have it that translation of these research works into meaningful community use is less common. Oromia Legal Training and Research Institute is one of the organs engaging in legal and justice research. From its commencement in 1999 until 2012 EC alone the institute has produced some 54 research works. However, some criticize the institute for the lack of translating the outcome of its research into action. Therefore, this research is conducted to identify and explain how much of the research findings are implemented and what factors impacted
its implementations. To this end, the research employed mainly qualitative methodology. Interview and focus group discussions were conducted with experts and leaders of research user organs. Relevant documents were analyzed. Additionally, a quantitative methodology like questionnaires is also used to supplement qualitative methodology. The research has revealed that despite many bottlenecks the Institute’s research findings are translated into actions that have substantially influenced the legal and justice system in the region. Figuratively
speaking some 76% of the institute’s research has gone through the implementation process. This can be hailed as a massive achievement. However, the institute has to adopt a relevant research implementation policy and other research stakeholders need to cooperate to scale up the research implementation for better impacts
