Common Challenges - Common Solutions
Commonwealth, Commerce and Ubuntu
Thank you for attending the 18th Commonwealth Law Conference at the Cape Town International Conference Centre. Delegates who have attended our previous conferences will, we are certain, agree that the biennial conference continues to offer a world-class education programme and we hope first time delegates will be encouraged to find out more about the work of the CLA throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
We would like to thank our host country and the beautiful city of Cape Town, the Local Organising Committee, and the Law Society of South Africa for all their hard work, both preparing for and during the conference, to make this a truly unforgettable event.
We also thank our sponsors who helped to support this event and the continuing work which we do in the promotion of the rule of law and the independent legal profession. The importance of the subjects discussed cannot be allowed to finish with the conference and we hope that each delegate has something new to take back to their own jurisdiction as a useful tool to the further development of the aims we all share.
It would not be right or proper not to acknowledge the amazing contribution of our speakers and chairs who travelled from all over the Commonwealth, putting their professional commitments aside to share with their fellow lawyers, academics, and law students the benefit of their expertise in their respective specialist areas of law. For CLC203 we were once again favoured by keynote speakers representing some of the finest legal professionals in the world today, and their contribution, as with all our speakers and chairs, is greatly appreciated.
As we all go back to our daily work, we hope the conference has demonstrated that in the Commonwealth today common challenges can be met with common solutions and that the spirit of ubuntu is not only possible but thriving in the Commonwealth today.
CLC2013: thank you for being a part of it.
We look forward to welcoming you all in 2015 to the great city of Glasgow.
