Who We Are

The African Law Students’ Association (ALSA) is an international, non-profit, non-governmental, non-partisan and non-political organisation run by and for Africa’s undergraduate law students and recent graduates who desire to achieve academic, professional and personal excellence in addition to their conventional law studies.

The Birth of ALSA

ALSA was established in 2013 out of the conviction that an organisation made up from and run by the most ambitious law students and young lawyers can contribute to legal education, foster mutual understanding and promote social responsibility in today’s world.

Goals & Objectives

ALSA seeks to bridge the gap among African law students, unite them and coordinate their affairs, provide a platform for them to realise their potentials, develop their existing skills and acquire new ones, create an avenue for law students to interact and network with fellow students and experienced practitioners from different jurisdictions across and around Africa, and to equip them for a professional life in an international environment through mutual understanding, intercultural cooperation, inter-African solidarity, all driven by the core values of unity and Pan-Africanism

Commitment to Legal Education
