In October 2011 members of the ATC travelled to Harare to conduct advocacy training for the Law Society of Zimbabwe. The three part programme is part of a broader involvement between the Law Society of Zimbabwe and the Bar Councils of South Africa and England and Wales, the particular emphasis of which is the maintenance of legal professional skills at a high level in Zimbabwe. A full report of the visit can be accessed here.
