CC looks to strengthen Africa ties by giving training to local lawyers


Clifford Chance (CC) has kicked off a training scheme for African lawyers, allowing them to access magic circle-standards of legal training.

The initiative, called the “Clifford Chance Africa Academy”, aims to give junior and senior associates at CC’s relationship firms access to a structured programme based on existing training courses developed by its global training arm, the Clifford Chance Academy, which provides technical and business skills training for its lawyers and business professionals.
