21st Annual Conference and General Meeting

All roads lead to Dar es salaam this November for the 21st edition of the East Africa Law Society Annual Conference and General Meeting scheduled for Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November 2015. The event - the premier networking, business development and learning event for East Africa's legal professionals - will feature discussions around the theme, "Enhancing Business Competitiveness through a Greater Democratisation of East Africa".

This year also sees the Annual Conference and AGM take on wider significance with a nod towards the growing demographic of the young lawyers who will also have a dedicated conference to be held on 24th November 2016 at the Tanzania Law School in Dar es salaam. A female lawyer focussed event - The Women in Law Breakfast Meeting - has also been introduced into the program to provide a regional platform for East Africa's female lawyers to meet and engage on the specific circumstances of the female lawyers within the region. Details
