As one of the leading law firms in East Africa, MRB consistently supports the East African Law Society and its programs. In the 24 th EALS Annual Conference and General Assembly that took place from 4th to 9th November 2019 at the Kigali International Convention Centre, Serena Hotel and Intare Conference Hall, in Rwanda, it was an opportune moment for MRB to show that actually charity begins at home! The guest of honour flagging off the events at the Convention Centre was none other than His Excellency President Paul Kagame who encouraged lawyers to continue selflessly pursuing access to justice and the rule of law. MRB is a regular supporter of the EALS leading law firms’ forum, the annual conference and related events. At the 24th EALS Annual Conference and General Assembly, MRB was both a sponsor and an active participant in all events. MRB had some of its personnel attend the Leading Law Firms Forum at Intare Conference Hall, the ILFA/ EALS Legal Excellency Academy at the Serena, the In-house Counsels’ Forum, the Women Lawyers’ Forum, the Kigali International Arbitration Centre Symposium and all related or programmed events. It was a time to catch up with old colleagues and friends, say thank you to those that contribute to the justice sector in East Africa and to ensure that young lawyers get the necessary skills, knowledge and exposure to take forward this great regional fraternity.
