This training targets a core group of legal professionals working on extractive industry issues across the region and once the training is complete the trained professionals will spearhead the advocacy process towards legal reform in the industry so that it reflects principles of transparency, gender sensitivity and accountability.

The training model and curriculum is developed and delivered collaboratively by both East African and Canadian Technical Experts. Trainees undergo five intense sessions and are examined at the start and end of sessions to gauge their level of understanding of the various areas.

So far four sessions have been undertaken across the region by each implementing Law Society being the Law Society of Kenya, Uganda Law Society and Tanganyika Law Society.
