The call for applications invites experts to design a methodology and carry-out a baseline study that will lay a foundation for setting achiev­able and realistic indicator targets for each outcome and output level results in the new TLS Strategic Plan (2020 – 2025)

The Tanganyika Law Society abbreviated as TLS is a statutory professional organization established by an Act of Parliament – the Tanganyika Law Society Ordinance of 1954. Currently TLS is governed by the Tanganyika Law Society Act, Cap 307 as amended.

One of the core components of TLS statutory mandate outlined in the TLS Act, Cap 307 is to assist the Government, Judiciary and Parliament in all matters affecting legislation, and the administration and practice of the law in Tanzania. Other TLS statutory mandate include; to facilitate the acquisition of legal knowledge by members of the legal profession and others, to protect and assist the public in Tanzania in all matters touching, ancillary or incidental to the law, and to represent, protect and assist members of the legal profession in Tanzania as regards to conditions of practice and otherwise.

In line to the statutory objectives mentioned above, TLS has developed a new Strategic Plan (2020 -2025). The Strategic Plan provides TLS with a strategic direction in the next five years. It mentions the strategic objectives, anticipated outcomes and outputs to be achieved. TLS has planned to conduct a baseline study at the level of strategic objectives, intermediate results and outputs. The baseline is expected to be used for setting targets against which effect of TLS work in the next five years will be measured.

The objectives of this baseline survey are;

    To describe/assess the situation of the Law Society and the legal profession before or at the beginning of the implementation of new TLS Strategic Plan 2020 – 2025
    To collect baseline data relevant to outcome and output indicators outlined in the Strategic Plan Results Framework in order to establish a foundation on which change can be measured at the end of strategic plan period
