The Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU) is the premier continental membership forum of and for individual African lawyers and lawyers’ associations in Africa. It 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. Its membership comprises of the continent’s over five regional lawyers’ associations (RLAs), over 54 national lawyers’ associations (NLAs) and over 1,000 individual lawyers spread across Africa and in the Diaspora, working together 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.
To realise a united, just and prosperous Africa, built on the rule of law and good governance, PALU has adopted three core areas of thematic focus, namely institutional development, development of the legal profession, and the rule of law and good governance.
The present consultancy assignment inscribes itself within the strategic goal of the Rule of Law and Good Governance Theme, which is to strengthen the standards of adherence to the just rule of law and good governance in Africa. Here, we design and implement programmes that catalyse the development and practice of African international law; build a practice around law, peace and security in Africa; advocate for the promotion and protection of human and peoples’ rights in Africa; and champion democracy, elections and governance in Africa that increases the levels of integrity in Africa’s economic governance.
