Another Successful Year for The Africa Law Tech Festival

The Africa Law Tech Festival 2023 was held on the 11th and 12th of July, 2023 in Nairobi. The Festival convened 2500 people in-person including 7 Bar Presidents from Francophone Africa, Data Commissioners, Members of parliament from the Digital Affairs committee in Germany ,as well as various African Union Organs, including the AU Commissioners advisor and the AfCFTA Secretariat on inter-continental trade.

The Lawyers Hub has been able to expand the festival through partnerships since receiving initial seed funding from the Omidyar Network in 2019. Partners now include Mozilla, Co-Develop, the German Development Cooperation (GIZ), Open Society, Amnesty International, Safaricom, the McCourt Institute, and Project Liberty. The 2022 edition of the festival, held in Brussels, Paris, and Germany, was made possible through the significant contributions of the French Development Agency, Luminate, and the Global Innovation Gathering.
