The Law Association of Zambia has won the bid to host the Commonwealth Law Conference, which will take place in Livingstone on April 14-18, 2019.
The conference is a subsidiary of the Commonwealth Lawyers Association (CLA), held biennially and commonly hosted by a Commonwealth member state.
It brings together over 1,000 international lawyers and judiciary from various legal specialisations, such as Corporate and Human Rights, to discuss a variety of legal topics and hear from expert speakers.
The Law Association of Zambia is one of the Commonwealth Law Association’s oldest members and was involved in the institution’s transformation from the Commonwealth Legal Bureau in 1986.
President Santhanakrishnan of the CLA said: “CLA are delighted to be bringing the conference to Zambia in conjunction with the Law Association of Zambia and I am confident this will be an extremely popular destination for our membership.
“I look forward to welcoming you all to the conference in April 2019.”
The Law Association of Zambia’s President Linda Kasonde said: “The Law Association of Zambia is delighted to have been selected for the opportunity to host this prestigious conference.
“Delegates to the conference can expect warm Zambian hospitality, a magnificent setting and a truly world class conference.”
