GOALS OF THE CONFERENCE
The theme for this year’s conference “BUILDING SUSTAINABLE OUTCOMES FOR THE LEGAL PROFESSION IN EAST AFRICA”, has been carefully selected to provide a platform for legal professionals across the region to discuss strategies that will guarantee the sustainability of the legal profession in a disruptive and ever changing environment.
The following sub-themes shall be explored, in addition to the main theme:

This is an initiative of the East Africa Law Society to promote the profession and build the capacity of lawyers in the region through training. The EALS institute provides world-class training in key areas of practice, governance and other key sectors to spur integration and development. The trainings are conducted by way of partnership with world leading institutions for collaborative trainings and accreditation.
Trainings are conducted both onsite and online. Trainers are sourced from our massive database of experts across East Africa as well as internationally recognized experts.
