Profound Profiles

Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU) launches its Profound Profiles series to highlight the contribution of eminent African and diaspora lawyers who have made a great impact in the development of the law, legal profession, rule of law, human and peoples’ rights and democracy as well as in their societies.

We encourage our members and friends to submit suggestions of such worthy women and men, both young and old, within or outside of the African continent.

L’Union Panafricaine des Avocats (UPA) lance sa série “Grandes figures”, dans laquelle il mettra en évidence les contributions d’éminents juristes tant Africains que ceux de la diaspora qui ont profondément marqué le développement du droit, la profession juridique, la règle du droit, les droits de l’homme et des peuples ainsi que la démocratie et leurs sociétés.

Nous encourageons nos membres et nos amis à émettre des suggestions relativement à ces valeureux hommes et femmes, aussi bien jeunes qu’âgés, au sein ou en dehors du continent Africain.
