AIJA Joint Seminar with UIA - Under African Skies – Investment, Financing and Natural Resources in Africa and beyond
11 - 13 February 2016
AIJA and UIA are thrilled to announce their first venture into South Africa, a thriving country and a growing presence in the international legal community. The interactive scientific program of this seminar, organized in conjunction with the L.E.A.D. of the Law Society of South Africa will cover a variety of topics relating to natural resources. In particular, we will examine issues commonly arising in the context of investing in, financing and negotiating M&A and finance transactions in the mining and natural resources sector, focusing on transactions with an African element.
This seminar will go beyond mere drafting and legal issues and will explore other aspects of working in and doing business with Africa, such as the Rule of law and corporate and social responsibility, employment and immigration.
