The Institute for African Women in Law

The Institute for African Women in Law (IAWL) is a Pan-African non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to supporting the formidable works of women in law across the continent of Africa and the Diaspora. Our goal is to be a focal point for addressing issues across the legal and judicial professions.

What we do

With our Flagship Reports, IAWL produces research that informs and transforms the nexus between discourse and praxis to promote transformative leadership and gender equality.

Our networks, cutting across the board in terms of experience within the legal profession, bridge the traditional professional silos between academia, the bench, and the bar.

IAWL is committed to advocating for gender diversity in law – from national to international courts and tribunals, law firms,  and other occupations within the legal field.
