Initially, it is planned to conduct comprehensive research and mapping to create a knowledge base for the development of a comprehensive list of anti-corruption and compliance instruments, as well as actors working in this field. This research, together with the support of experts and the establishment of an African Lawyers Anti-Corruption Steering Committee, will lead to the development of anti-corruption and compliance standards for African Lawyers, as well as a curriculum for a series of training courses on international, African regional and sub-regional anti-corruption instruments and methods of ensuring compliance. Through the Pan African Lawyers Initiative’s interactive website, African lawyers will be able to pledge their adherence to the above-mentioned and new anti-corruption standards.
The Pan African Lawyers Union (PALU) is a continental membership forum for African lawyers and lawyers' associations. PALU was founded in 2002, by African Bar leaders and eminent lawyers, to reflect the aspirations and concerns of the African people and to promote and defend their shared interests. It brings together the continent's five Regional and 54 National Lawyers Associations, whose Presidents constitute the PALU Council. It is the vision of PALU to see a united, just and prosperous Africa, built on the rule of law and good governance. Its mission is to advance the law and the legal profession, rule of law, good governance, human and peoples' rights and socio-economic development of the African continent.
