ILFA is a UK based organisation focused on building excellence in legal services across Africa. The goal of ILFA is to enhance the quality and delivery of legal services to clients (both in and out of Africa) and to strengthen the rule of law in Africa.
To this end, ILFA operates an annual international secondment programme where lawyers practising in various African jurisdictions are selected and sponsored on a 3-month secondment at highly reputed international law firms based in London, Paris and Dubai. During the last decade ILFA has successfully seconded and trained almost 200 African lawyers from 20 jurisdictions, and in 2016, the programme was further extended through the introduction of an intra-Africa secondment programme.
Given ILFA’s overall commitment to legal training and capacity building and in view of the overwhelming need in Africa for comprehensive continuous legal education, the Angaza Africa Law Training platform was created.
Angaza’s mission is to equip lawyers from across Africa with the tools and know-how required to deliver excellent legal services both in Africa and beyond.
