Pan African Law (PALS)

Sign up to our Mailing List to find out more information about our group!

Pan-African Law Society was founded at the University of Leicester in November 2014.

At its inception the society entrenched itself in the School of Law at the University of Leicester. It’s Founder Dimeji Olakanmi represented its members interest at the student representative council, pushing for academic reforms that will benefit students from African countries looking to return back home.

PALS instituted programs such as the PALS CHAT and the PALS SPEAK CONFERENCE which saw the society nominated as the best new student society of the year in 2015 at the University of Leicester student awards.

The society has moved beyond Leicester and has replicated itself at the Nigerian Law School, Abuja. A central body has been formed in order to implement its vision on a national, continental as well as global scale.

This years society hopes to bring a more diverse committee as well as more diverse events. We aim to host events that are topical and challenge stereotypes and normative on issues pertaining to Africa and othe ethnic minority countries. 

President: Taiwo Ogunbiyi
