Zanzibar, 27th March, 2015

The Executive Council of the East Africa Law Society, that was elected at the Kigali AGM in November last year, is set to hold its inaugural meeting on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March 2014 at the Melia Hotel and Resort in Zanzibar. The two day meeting, the first under the stewardship of EALS President Mr. Nassor Khamis Mohamed, will also see the Executive Council undergo an orientation session facilitated by EALS Immediate Past President, Mr. James Aggrey Mwamu.

The Executive Council of the EALS is mandated to provide policy guidance to the Society with quarterly meetings such as this one providing the avenue through which this is undertaken. Among the key items on the agenda is the decision on the Date, Theme and Venue for the 2015 EALS Annual Conference and General Meeting. It should be remembered that this year’s event will coincide with celebrations to mark 20 years of the Premier Regional Bar Association for East Africa.
