IBA Executive Director introduces the Law Students' Committee:
Welcome message from the Law Students' Committee Chair
It is my privilege to welcome you to the IBA Law Students' Committee, which comprises members from over 70 countries. The Law Students' Committee draws on its rich cultural diversity to offer students a distinctive membership experience, which transcends borders and bridges the gap between disparate legal jurisdictions.
Whilst the Law Students' Committee is a relatively recent addition to the vast IBA network of committees, many of its members will undoubtedly be the future leaders of the legal profession and the international community at large, and therefore its importance cannot be overstated.
The Law Students' Committee is governed by the Law Students' Steering Committee, which comprises a team of dedicated law students, whose unflagging efforts in organising projects, enrich the lives of law students around the world. The Steering Committee is assisted by other IBA Committees and numerous IBA staff members, whose indefatigable efforts and unwavering support has ensured that the Law Students' Committee has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 2011.
As a student member of the IBA, I urge you to make the best possible use of the plethora of resources at your disposal and the extensive network of legal contacts that membership of the IBA affords. In order to reap the immense benefits that accrue from IBA student membership, I encourage you to become actively involved in the multitude of projects organised by the IBA for the benefit of its student members.
As you embark upon your journey towards becoming a fully-fledged lawyer, you will note that the opportunities are endless and active engagement with the IBA will pave the way for a rewarding and successful legal career.
I wish you every success in your academic and professional careers.
Chair, IBA Law Students’ Committee
