CMJA Virtual Conference 12-15 September 2021

Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the CMJA is venturing into new realms and is holding its 2021 conference virtually for the first time. Where possible we have tried to take into account the time differences so that you are able to participate in the Conference wherever you are in the Commonwealth.


This Conference is a unique opportunity for you to interact with other judicial officers to build the feeling of community with your colleagues.


The virtual conference will bring the expertise and knowledge of our distinguished speakers directly to you in your home or your office.

The President of the CMJA


We are delighted that, despite the continued pandemic and travel restrictions worldwide, the CMJA is able to organise a Conference this year. Whilst we appreciate that holding a Commonwealth-wide virtual conference may not be ideal for everyone, we feel that it is important that we gather our members together once again and we have much to discuss this year in relation to how the pandemic has affected the good administration of justice across the Commonwealth and how we can share our experiences and innovations going forward.


Our Director of Programmes, Judge Shamim Qureshi has put together an exciting programme for the CMJA on “Post Pandemic Innovations”. We all hope that the roll out of the vaccines across the world will take place quickly and that we can revert to our in-person conferences. However, in the meantime we would be delighted to see you online and for you to participate in the CMJA’s first virtual Conference.

His Hon. Justice Mankhambira Charles Mkandawire JA CMJA President
