Statements

One of the pillars of the role of the Commonwealth Lawyers Association is to maintain and promote the Rule of Law throughout the Commonwealth.  Thus, we seek to expose its abuse whenever and wherever it arises in the Commonwealth by publishing statements, on our own account, or in conjunction with other Commonwealth organisations with similar objects, detailing the circumstances of such abuse and calling for the Rule of Law to be upheld.
