Each year the International Bar Association (IBA), the world’s largest international organisation of law societies, bar associations and individual lawyers engaged in transnational law, holds an Annual Conference, which attracts the participation of some 6000 lawyers from more than 100 jurisdictions. The IBA’s Legal Practice Division (LPD), Section of Public and Professional Interest Division (SPPI) and Other Entities present informative and engaging sessions covering current topics of significance to lawyers throughout the world.
The Annual Conference working sessions are complemented by a full social programme which provides the opportunity for delegates meet, establish and maintain business contacts and friendships with peers of the legal profession worldwide.
Scholarships are awarded to young lawyers who wish to participate at the Annual Conference, but may find it financially difficult to do so.
The 2019 Conference Scholarships are now OPEN.
