ILFA has launched 2 programmes for quarter one of 2020:
International Flagship Secondment Programme 2020
The application portal for 2020 has opened and will remain open until 10 January 2020. The 3-month secondment program will run between September and December 2020.
Please do encourage your relevant contacts to apply for the program. Please see the link below for eligibility and selection criteria. Organisations and applicants are encouraged to review changes to the eligibility criteria and additional programme requirements which will be introduced in 2020.
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.
