The legal professionalism has a focal support role to play in defining the legal and policy environment on which the East African Community integration process is hinged. This EALS fulfils this role under its program on:
- Harmonization of Laws and Law reform, to ensure consonance between regional and national law and policies.
- East African community Support, under which the EALS through its observer status engages the EAC to provide quality input on regional bills, policies and frameworks.
- Burundi and Rwanda integration which aims to facilitate their faster integration and participation in the EAC in the view of their late entrance into the community.
