Commonwealth Lawyers Association (CLA) is a membership organisation for professional lawyers, academics and students practising within the Commonwealth although it welcomes qualified international lawyers and academics with an interest in its work. CLA seeks to uphold the rule of law by encouraging exchanges between members of the profession, through projects, conferences and workshops, and by driving improvements in legal education. CLA regularly engages with other Commonwealth organisations on Commonwealth working groups and projects, and is an accredited partner organisation of the official Commonwealth. CLA holds a conference in a Commonwealth member state every two years.
