ILFA Angaza Africa Law Training (Angaza)
In view of ILFA’s overall commitment to legal training and capacity building and given the overwhelming need in Africa for comprehensive continuous legal education, the Angaza platform was created. Angaza’s mission is to equip lawyers from across Africa with the tools and know-how required to deliver excellent legal services both in Africa and beyond. Launched in Autumn 2016, Angaza is ILFA’s one-stop, web-based, training platform for lawyers practising in Africa. It delivers affordable, accessible and CPD accredited training through a video-on-demand, online training programme plus value added resources such as a free law resource, practice notes, standard documents, legal updates and blogs. Angaza currently has in excess of 40 course modules with a many more planned for release this year. Course contributors and tutors are drawn from ILFA’s extensive network of lawyers in London, Paris, Dubai and also from across the African continent. Educational providers such as LexisNexis and Loan Market Association also support Angaza through the provision of relevant content to our users.

Tailored Legal Education for Africa
In addition to the video law library, Angaza also supports African lawyers with:
- Blogs & Insights – Our blog runs on a bi-weekly basis and is geared towards lawyers practicing in Africa. Content is available in both English and French. Topic areas are varied and include technical, soft skills and business development updates. Click here to view current blog entries.
- Practice Notes – Our practice notes section is intended to assist lawyers in Africa who might not otherwise have access to this type of information. Subject matters range vastly. Click here to view current practice notes.
- Standard Documents – Standard documents are intended to provide lawyers with forms or documents that can be used as reference material within their own practice. We do not create these documents internally and are constantly looking to our partners to help with these. Please visit the Standard Documents to see what we have to date.
