Scholarships and Awards
The Women Lawyers' Interest Group of the IBA is delighted that it will again be awarding scholarships to attend its 7th World Women Lawyers' Conference in Berlin from 7-8 April 2016. The scholarships will be awarded to scholars who wish to participate in this IBA conference, but who are unable to do so owing to financial constraint. The IBA therefore invites interested persons to apply for a scholarship.
The scholarship award includes:
free registration for the IBA 7th World Women Lawyers' Conference, 7-8 April 2016, Berlin, Germany; and
a contribution towards travel and accommodation costs to the conference.
Applications are now CLOSED.
