The African Bar Association which was established in 1971 as a professional body uniting individual lawyers and national legal associations in Africa, was designed to be a federation of national legal associations, corporate and unincorporated legal entities, and individual lawyers.
While unifying all lawyers in Africa, it has recognized the Federation of African Law Students as the recognised body to unify all law students in Africa in furtherance of its mandate. As the unified student body of all law students in Africa, it is the primary objective of the Federation of African Law Students to serve as a link to law students in Africa to provide opportunities for African Law students, bridge the existing gap,proffer viable solutions to their problems, build a network of outstanding students who who would collaborate towards a common future and ensure that African Law Students are attuned to new realities and global practices.
The Federation is also committed to building an emerging generation of young lawyers who are engaged in changing the narratives and adding value to the African continent. In its one year of existence, it has been able to establish meaningful partnerships which have birthed myriads of learning and traveling opportunities for students. Presently in over 30 countries, the Federation has also visited four different countries and hopes to continue the narrative of being the fearless voice of the Legal profession.
The Federation of African Law Students is committed to unifying the African voices through the law.
