The African Legal Awards is the continent's most high-profile awards event for the legal profession.

The Awards, which are due to take place on September 2 in Johannesburg, sets out to recognise exceptional achievement by Africa’s legal elite.

Hosted by Law.com International and partnered with the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa (CCASA) and Africa Legal these awards continue to showcase incredible talent, and recognise more of a pan-African audience each year. This year saw 500 submissions and in the last three years since the awards started, has seen representation from 20 countries across Africa. 

The Alliance itself will be competing for the African Legal Network/Alliance of the Year award alongside leading African law firm networks such as LEX Africa and Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa Inc.

AGA's African network includes market-leading, independent law firms in Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. An integrated alliance of accounting firms in 9 African countries ensures further efficiencies and strategic opportunities for members and clients.
