A webinar presented by the IBA Rule of Law Forum and supported by the IBA Law Firm Management Committee

This is a fundraising webinar in support of Ukrainians impacted by the war. During the registration process you will see suggested donation options - GBP 50; GBP 100 and GBP 150. All money raised will go to the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

Part two of a two-part series covering the business ramifications and ethical considerations of the invasion of Ukraine, and what law firms and lawyers can do today to help and support Ukraine.


Part 2: How the international legal community is responding

In the second part of our series, we will bring together a senior Ukrainian lawyer and representatives of various IBA entities to discuss how the international legal community is responding to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What practical help and support do Ukrainian lawyers most want? How are pro bono efforts best focused in these circumstances? How can atrocities best be documented in a war zone? How can accountability for violations of international law be ensured?

The webinar will be introduced by IBA Section on Public and Professional Interest Chair, Jörg Menzer.
