    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.

    Our goal is to make legal education socially relevant and professionally useful, through Conferences, Moots, Newsletters, lecture series, curriculum development and activites for students.

    The next CLEA Conference for 2019 and the 2019 Moot, will take place in April 2019 in Zambia.
