Partner countries: Tanzania and Germany

The Tanzanian-German Centre for Eastern African Legal Studies (TGCL) began operations in 2008. It offers structured and highly specialised LLM and PhD programmes to aspiring lawyers from all partner states of the East African Community and beyond, to qualify them for leading positions in the region. The thematic focus of the TGCL is on regional integration law with a special emphasis on the law of the East African Community. The centre is one of the key institutions in the training of future leaders in East Africa. The programmes are conducted at the School of Law of the University of Dar es Salaam, in close cooperation with the University of Bayreuth. The current TGLC coordinator is Dr Benedict T Mapunda.

The centre has at least 200 alumni.
