9th Annual Conference of the Pan African Lawyers Union

Theme: “One Continent, One People, One Economy: Developing Africa through Continental Free Trade and Free Movement”Dearest greetings from the Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU), the continental forum for African lawyers and lawyers’ associations. On behalf of the President and Executive Committee of PALU, we warmly invite you to our 9th Annual Conference, which will take place in Tunis, Tunisia from the 27th to 29th September 2018.

We will hold our Annual Council Meeting within the Conference. Pursuant to the Resolutions of our 2017 General Assembly (held in Durban, South Africa), this year we will also hold a General Assembly, which will include adoption of amendments to the PALU Constitution, and subsequent elections to the Executive Committee that will lead the organization for the next three years. We will also take the opportunity to rejuvenate our Members’/ Practice Committees including assigning various leadership roles.

At the Conference, we will have quality presentations from renowned speakers and panelists from Africa and beyond, along our three sections:
– Section on Business law (SBL)
– Section on Legal Practice (SLP)
– Section on Pubic Interest and Development Law (SPIDEL)

The Conference will take place in Gammarth, a 20-minutes’ drive from the Tunis airport, at the Ramada Plaza, a beach resort. Recently renovated, the hotel will offer participants the best of what Tunisia has to offer: world class food, spacious accommodation, and plenty of entertainment for all tastes.
More importantly, it will be an impressive conference agenda; boasting an impressive assortment of panelists that will trigger debates and discussions; that will surely satisfy even the most discerning participants.
To be held under the theme “One Continent, One People, One Economy: Developing Africa through continental free trade and free movement”, the Conference will attract more than 400 participants from all corners of Africa, and the Diaspora. Don’t miss the opportunity to build up your network and business ties while learning about various topical issues in legal practice on the continent.

This year, PALU also makes things easier for its participants: the registration fees also include accommodation for four (4) nights, airport transfers, conference material, tea breaks and lunch during the Conference, and a gala dinner.

That’s not all, you will also be asked to choose between 3 incredible half-day activities to complement your stay, for free, at the end of the General Assembly, on 29th in the afternoon:
Golf Tournament, at a PGA-accredited golf course.
Visit of the Bardo National Museum, one of the most impressive museums in the world for Roman mosaics and is second only to the Cairo Museum in Africa for the richness of its collection.
Visit of the Ruins of Carthage, which will give a glimpse of the past grandeur of this millennial civilisation; combined with a visit of Sidi Bou Said, the city of white and blue, which will leave you mesmerised.

And if that’s not enough and you would like to explore more of Tunisia, you can add to your registration fees an additional 250$ to add two nights in an all-inclusive resort in Monastir; to wind down, recharge the batteries and discover even more of the Tunisian wonders. This is an incredible occasion to seize.

For current Life Members: 500$
For current Ordinary Members: 700$
For aspiring Ordinary Members: 800$, with complimentary membership until 2019
