ILFA Programmes

 What ILFA delivers

ILFA is a UK-based organisation focused on building excellence in legal services across Africa. ILFA’s goal 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.

In the last decade ILFA has successfully seconded and trained 170 African lawyers from 20 jurisdictions through its flagship programme, and in 2016, the programme was further extended through the introduction of an intra-Africa secondment programme which was launched in Lagos, Nigeria. ILFA intends to run similar intra-Africa secondments in South Africa and Kenya.

To achieve its goal, ILFA operates three core programmes:

  • ILFA Flagship Programme - 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 and corporations based in London, Paris and Dubai. Read more...
  • ILFA Intra Africa Programme - a bi-annual intra-Africa secondment programme where, under a similar model, lawyers from one African jurisdiction are placed in law firms in another African jurisdiction. Read more...
  • ILFA Angaza Africa Law Training - ILFA’s one-stop, web-based, training platform for lawyers practising in Africa. Angaza delivers affordable, accessible and CPD accredited training through a video-on-demand, online training programme plus value added resources such as practice notes, standard documents, legal updates and blogs.
