On Thursday 5th October, the Oxford Public International Law group hosted a group of lawyers from the International Lawyers for Africa (ILFA) Flagship Programme for a one day workshop on Public International Law

The mission of the ILFA is to build legal excellence in Africa by providing access to advanced legal training, networking opportunities, and education for African lawyers and senior professionals engaged in the negotiation of complex transactions in Africa. The Programme facilitates opportunities for African lawyers to take part in a three-month secondment at international law firms and corporations based in London, Paris, and Dubai.

This year, a group of 17 lawyers travelled to Oxford to attend lectures on The Law of International Responsibility;  International Human Rights Law and International Dispute Settlement. The lectures were given by Professor Dapo Akande, Professor Miles Jackson and Antonio Coco.  Professor Sandra Fredman also spoke to the ILFA lawyers on the Oxford Human Rights Hub.
