From the Co-Chairs, Young Lawyers' Committee, October 2020
As many would be aware, November is the month in which we would normally be greeting you at the IBA Annual Conference. We are disappointed that we could not come together in person for stimulating talks, cultural events and a phone full of happy snaps. However, we are looking forward to an exciting agenda for the IBA 2020 – Virtually Together Conference and an opportunity to meet and greet you in the comfort of your home or office.
We thank everyone who submitted articles for the newsletter, attended webinars and answered the first IBA-run global survey on young lawyers (over 6000 of you!). We appreciate your willingness to share ideas and insights from your jurisdictions and we are proud of the strong community within the committee. It has never been more important to remain connected and engaged at such an important time for our profession.
We hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter and we shall see you at the Conference!
