The annual meeting place for Africa's leading general counsel

Thursday 7 September 2017
The Wanderers Club, Johannesburg, South Africa

Follow us @LegalWeekEvents

Africa is one of the most sophisticated, diverse and promising emerging markets in the world today. Its vibrant market conditions, world-class infrastructure, and growing industrial capabilities makes it an attractive prospect for businesses looking to expand in the region. But despite its seemingly buoyant economy in the last few years, persistent political tensions and economic instability remains a key concern for the African legal community.

The 6th Annual Corporate Counsel Forum Africa will re-unite some of the region's leading general counsel and senior in-house counsel to discuss, debate and deliver vital insights into the changing dynamic of the African legal market. Issues which continue to drive change within corporate legal functions will dominate this year's programme, while our interactive breakout sessions aim to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for ultimate success.


We are delighted to once again have the support of the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa (CCASA) and are excited to work with them on developing an exceptional speaker line-up. With their support and dedication to developing the corporate counsel community in Africa, we are certain the forum will surpass expectations for yet another year.

Harness this exclusive opportunity to develop your legal expertise and join us on Thursday 7 September 2017 at The Wanderers Club, Johannesburg to gain access to this year's most thought-provoking discussions and game-changing debates.
