DLA Piper runs fifth training school for next generation of Tanzanian lawyers
DLA Piper, in conjunction with its client General Electric (GE) and IMMMA Advocates, has begun a teaching course at the Law School of Tanzania for the fifth consecutive year.
The project was developed in close collaboration with Dr Gerald Ndika, the school’s principal. Through the programme, each year DLA Piper and GE send teams of senior lawyers from around the world to Dar es Salaam to deliver a two-week programme of interactive workshops.
Through New Perimeter, DLA Piper’s global pro bono initiative, an international team of 11 DLA Piper lawyers and nine GE lawyers will provide a two-week training on legal drafting to almost 400 law graduates.
The aim of the project is to provide legal drafting skills training to future Tanzanian lawyers and to help build capacity at the Law School, which is a graduate-level training institute mandatory for all law graduates seeking admission to the bar.
