“Class Action is one of those important areas of law to which legal experts in developing countries dangerously do not pay attention…” – Anthony Kila

This is an initiative of the Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies, with input from the Cambridge Law Society, The American Law Society, The Nigerian Bar Association and The African Bar Association.

It is aimed at experienced and new Legal Practitioners as well as Judges and Magistrates who want to improve their performance and those who are new to the role but want to reach high levels.

The programme has been designed bearing in mind the need of and with a lot of inputs from Lawyers and Judges, Legal Secretaries and Commissioners, Legislators, Advisers, Human Rights Activists, Consumer Protection Experts and Consultants from various industries across Africa.

The main purpose of this programme is to help create Class Action Experts that can successfully manage the inevitable challenges and opportunities inherent to Class Action in developing countries.

Legal Experts of the future will understand that the nature of their job is changing and affected by technology, they will be able to make the most of social media and technology in general, be versatile and capable of taking initiatives.

A survey carried out recently amongst Chairmen and Directors, Diplomats, Ministers and Commissioners, Legislators, Advisers, Media Practitioners, Human Rights Activists, Consumer Protection Experts and top Consultants revealed that most of them understand that Class Action is fast gaining grounds in Nigeria and they all want legal experts who work closely with them to have a good understand of analysing and managing Class Action for and against them.

It is aimed at experienced and new Legal Practitioners as well as Judges and Magistrates who want to improve their performance and those who are new to the role but want to reach high levels.
