TrustLaw and the ALN Academy are thrilled to be hosting a webinar for international NGOs and non-profits with operations in East Africa, working through the Africa Legal Network’s Kenya (Anjarwalla & Khanna) and Tanzanian members (ATZ Law Chambers).

This free and interactive online workshop will explore some of the main corporate and commercial law issues encountered by INGOs operating in Kenya and Tanzania. All participating organizations will receive high-level, preliminary insight on some of the top areas of legal concern for INGOs: corporate governance and structuring, intellectual property, commercial agreements and employment law.
