On Friday 8 May 2015, GENI & KEBE welcomed eminent jurist and international law professor, Judge Tafsir Malick Ndiaye, who is currently serving as a judge for the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) in Hamburg, Germany.  
Since the beginning of the year, GENI & KEBE has instigated a series of “Friday Talks”, to give the firm’s lawyers the opportunity to meet with specialists in their fields and continue their learning and professional development.

Judge Ndiaye spoke about his work as an international judge and gave the lawyers much to think about in relation to resolving international disputes. The lawyers – many of whom work on international arbitration cases – appreciated the opportunity to tap into his experience on these issues.
“It was a privilege to have an intimate discussion with such a significant Senegalese lawyer and we thank Judge Ndiaye for his time,” said Managing Partner, Mouhamed Kebe. “Through these Friday Talks, our lawyers have an ongoing opportunity to improve their knowledge and their ability to serve our international clients.” 
Previous Friday Talks have been wide ranging and have included Mr Dossolo Diarra, the Resident Representative for the Economic and Monetary Union of West Africa (UEMOA), Dr Rogation Poda, former Deputy Director of the Legal Department of the Central Bank of West Afrcan States (BCEAO), Professor Lamie Sylla from the Multinational School of Telecommunications and international arbitrator, Mr Joachim Kuckenburg.
