WELCOME to the website of the Commonwealth Legal Education Association
The Commonwealth Legal Education Association (CLEA) fosters and promotes high standards of legal education in the Commonwealth. Founded in 1971, it is a Commonwealth-wide body with regional Chapters and Committees in South Asia, Southern Africa, West Africa, the Caribbean and the UK.
CLEA has a long-standing history of holding conferences that are both prestigious and informative and the 2017 Conference will be no different. It will be held in Melbourne Australia. The Commonwealth Law Conference will also take place in Melbourne in March 2017.
CLEA are pleased to announce the sixth Commonwealth law student essay competition, which is now open. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners of first, second and third places. The winning entry will also be published in the Newsletter of the Commonwealth Legal Education and may also be published in the Journal of Commonwealth Law and Legal Education.
The Association works with the Commonwealth and three other Commonwealth professional organisations: the Commonwealth Magistrates and Judges Association, the Commonwealth Lawyers Association and the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, on the development of the Latimer House Guidelines for the Commonwealth.
