Organisation Profile
Africa International Legal Awareness (AILA) was founded in 2011. AILA is a non-profit organisation that works to ensure Africans are better placed to participate effectively in the international legal community. It aims to:

• promote sustainable economic development in African countries through the advancement of knowledge, education, training, professional competence and best practices in international economic laws and providing access to international law materials to African practitioners and scholars;

• advance the education of the public in African countries in international economic laws and practices relating to investment, trade and all other economic aspects of relations which regulate international transactions by all or any of the following means: lectures, conferences, seminars, practical experience schemes, mentoring and publications (including results of commissioned research); and

• encourage recognition of African international lawyers and dispute resolution practitioners by providing them with a platform to promote their legal skills and raise awareness of African international law jurisprudence through our Blog and participation in our conferences.

AILA, which is authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) in England and Wales as an external Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provider, organises and runs a series of training workshops and other exchanges of knowledge in African countries and abroad. Its flagship program is a one-week training programme on Investment Treaty Law and Arbitration delivered in London.
