Booting up to come out of hibernation mode, this Leo starts with this month's international update from the Law Society of England and Wales (E&W) which - to a great extent - demonstrates the ever-growing interests in the legal services industry across Africa. Below are two events that you may be interested in.

(1) The Law Society (E&W) CPD accredited International Lawyers' Training Programme. This seminar will take place in Lagos, Nigeria on 25th  and 26th of November 2013 and is supported by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Section on Business Law  The two one-day training sessions will cover on day 1: Financial management for law firms; and on day 2: Law firm business development.
