From small beginnings in 1999 Advocates Africa has grown into a dynamic network of Christian Lawyers from across the continent.
The 11th Biennial Convocation of Advocates Africa will take place in Cape Town, South Africa in August 2015. The meeting will convene to discuss national and continental issues; in particular the rise of religious intolerance and how we need to respond to this as lawyers, legal academics, legislators and judges from across the continent.
“Religious Liberty: a Touchstone for true freedom in a modern world”
Given the widespread incidences of religious intolerance and violence experienced by communities in recent times, the theme of this year’s Convocation is truly appropriate. The Convocation will provide an opportunity for dialogue, education and serious contemplation as to the way forward on this poignant issue.
In addition to the primary theme, the convocation will place an emphasis on corruption and the challenge we face to formulate a constructive response to address this scourge and its effect on our communities and nations. This will be addressed under the theme: Integrity under the Rule of Law.
Speakers at the conference will include both high profile South Africans leaders and international experts.
