You’re Welcome

President’s Welcome Address

Welcome to the African Law Students’ Association (‘ALSA’). We are 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. We are the voice of over 25 African Countries.

ALSA champions the interests of law students through knowledge sharing, educational seminars, competitions, advocacy, legal writings and partnerships. These are the hallmarks of not just our Annual Conferences, End of Year Summits, but also the priorities, which guide us. While we are grounded by these certainties, the character of ALSA has taken many forms over the past 9 years. As an African or African in the diaspora law student or lawyer, ALSA represents your interests. From competitions to scholarships, ALSA is here to help. As we look forward to the 2022/2023 term and beyond, I want to acknowledge the work of ALSA predecessors. We are committed to innovating our approach to better serve our community, while learning from those who have come before us.

As Chairman/President, I think I have three main aspirations for ALSA. First, that we emerge as key stakeholders in the things that matter to the next generation of law students and lawyers, namely: resolving issues pertaining to access to legal education without compromising the quality, diversity, education reform and addressing issues concerning law students with disabilities. Secondly, that in advocating on what we expect in our law schools and the legal profession, we lead by example. We recognize that the diversity amongst students is our greatest strength. We are committed to the amplification of diverse voices in our pursuit of a future, which is fundamentally built on inclusivity, mutual respect, and equal representation. Thirdly, that we acknowledge and embrace the necessary changes in our approach to learning and working in the legal industry.

In this regard, I am confident the ALSA International Council will work diligently toward these targets as a group and in our respective portfolios. We hope to work closely with our members, the law faculties, our prominent International Board of Advisors, Ambassadors, Board of Trustees and any other person(s) in the profession to achieve the above goals.

I hope that our term will allow us to undertake more interactive and thoughtful physical ALSA Annual, Regional and National Conferences, Moot Court Competitions, Study trips, courtesy visits to prominent entities/personalities and law faculties within the African Continent and not forgetting the fact that, our  2023 ALSA Annual Conference is just few months away. I wish to see us all there.

I am excited to be part of our next generational changers, and I am honoured to have been chosen to lead it. I am really impressed, and therefore urge all the newly appointed officials to use their innovative ideas in order to make the name of ALSA glaring in the world.

Thank you
