Register for SADC-LA Pro Bono Consultative Meeting, 4th December 2019 in Dar es Salaam.

The SADC-LA is excited to introduce the SADCLA Pro Bono Forum in Tanzania. The pro bono forum aims at promoting pro bono initiatives in the region through #BeyondBilling Campaign and, further, to create a pro bono network of lawyers, NGOs and individuals working on issues of regional integration, poverty eradication through economic development, access to justice, peace and security and human rights.

The creation of SADCLA pro bono forum was resolved by the SADCLA AGM held in Dar es Salaam Tanzania in August 2016. The inaugural SADC-LA  Pro Bono Forum was held on 15th and 16th August 2018, in Maputo, Mozambique. The 2019 Pro bono Forum has just been concluded at Johannesburg, South Africa on 20th and 21st November 2019. In 2019, SADC-LA Pro bono Initiative has also conducted pro bono country-specific consultative meetings in Malawi and Zimbabwe

A SADCLA pro bono consultative meeting has been scheduled in Tanzania on Wednesday, 4th December 2019, from 9.00am to 12.30pm, at TLS Headquarters, Chato Street Regent Estate, Dar es Salaam. This is to invite members of TLS interested in pro bono work join the SADCLA pro bono database and register for the pro bono consultative meeting.

ILFA Elevate 2020

Following the success of the Elevate in house counsel forum in Lagos earlier this year, ILFA will now organise a follow-up event in Nairobi in February 2020. Please see attached a save the date flyer and see below details on the website. The Elevate 2020 programme will be targeted at both corporate counsel and government lawyers. We hope you will participate and share details with others. The nature of the forum means that we will limit the number of external law firms that can be involved. Please do let me know if the event is of interest in which case I can share further information.

Finally, by way of reminder, the ILFA Fundraising Gala Dinner will take place next Thursday (28th November 2019) at the UK Law Society. This year the event is themed the ILFA Ankara Ball. We have a handful of tickets remaining for anyone that wishes to attend. For those who cannot attend, we would encourage you to either sponsor the attendance of someone else and/or support ILFA’s fundraising efforts by making a charitable donation. Please see links below either for purchasing a ticket, sponsoring the event or donating to ILFA. Without such funding support, ILFA would not be able to function or to continue to extend legal capacity across Africa. We particularly urge those firms and organisations whose lawyers have benefitted from ILFA’s programmes to consider making a donation to help ensure other lawyers can continue to benefit from the work that ILFA is doing. Your support would be very welcome.
