Our events are organised and delivered by a team of the most eminent practitioners in their field

Our flagship training programme is an annual week-long training programme on Investment Treaty Law and Arbitration delivered in London in the month of September to government and private practice lawyers from across Africa.  We also regularly deliver training, conferences and seminars in African countries and elsewhere.  The seminars and conferences are often delivered in association with other institutions.

AILA strongly encourages early application/registration and reserves the right to cancel any training, conference or seminar if the number of applicants is insufficient.  Applicants/registrants will be notified of any cancellation in good time.  In the event of cancellation of an event, AILA will refund any monies paid towards participation but will not be responsible for any costs associated with preparation for your trip (e.g. visas, plane tickets, hotel accommodation etc.).

To apply for a training programme, conference or seminar, complete the relevant application or registration form available under Upcoming Events on the home page. Each training programme, conference or seminar has different requirements.  Accordingly, ensure that you provide all the relevant information requested.

Training Programmes

Submission of an application form does not guarantee participation.  Whilst we value all applications for training programmes, we regret that we will only be able to contact successful candidates.

Tuition Fee

The fee for each training programme, conference or seminar can be found on the link to the relevant event from our homepage.  AILA events are designed to be accessible and affordable to low and middle income countries.  Accordingly, any fees charged will be proportionate to these countries’ income levels.  The fees include any course materials, conference and seminar materials, refreshments, meals and social events at the venue. The fee does not include the cost of airfare, hotel meals and incidentals.  It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure that they can cover these expenses.


Upon successful completion of a training programme each participant will be presented with a Certificate of Completion. Successful completion requires that a participant attend all sessions.  If a participant misses a number of sessions, AILA reserves the right to withhold certification.

Conferences and Seminars

Upon receipt of your completed registration for a conference or seminar you will receive an acknowledgement via e-mail.  Delegate places are only guaranteed once payment has been received.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations of conference registrations must be received in writing at least one month before the event is due to run.  Any fees paid will be refunded to you less an administration fee of £50 (GBP).  No refund of fees will be possible if cancellations are received less than one month before a conference is due to be held.  Substitutions however can be made at any time.  Please advise us of substitutions as early as possible.
