The PALU 9th conference will provide the opportunity for the participants to attend debates of current issues in the African continent and to voice aspiration for a united, just and prosperous Africa, built on the rule of law and good governance.
The Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU) is a continental membership forum for African lawyers and lawyers’ associations.
PALU was founded in 2002, by African Bar leaders and eminent lawyers, to reflect the aspirations and concerns of the African people and to promote and defend their shared interests. It brings together the continent’s five regional lawyers’ associations, over fifty-four national lawyers’ associations and over 500 lawyers.
The PALU’s mission is to advance the law and the legal profession, rule of law, good governance, human and peoples’ rights and socio-economic development of the African continent.
