The activity selected to pioneer the Centre for Comparative Law in Africa's (CCLA) capacity-building engagement under the TY Danjuma Fund is the training of junior Law academics in research skills. The first of these training events is scheduled for September 2016 and will cover a selection of researchers from the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies.

This event is modelled after the Emerging Researchers’ Programme at University of Cape Town (UCT) where young academics are mentored through a programme that introduces them comprehensively to the research enterprise.

Training sessions at the NIALS workshop will address various aspects of conducting research in an African context, including research planning, methodologies and dissemination. The objective is to equip participants with tools for initiating, undertaking and publishing Africa-focused research.
