The 2013 International Professional and Legal Development Programme

Applications for this year’s CPD Grants Programme for young barristers are now open. Under the programme, barristers under seven years’ Call, who are members of a participating SBA/organisation/Circuit can apply for financial assistance to participate in international legal events of their choice which contribute to their professional development. The programme aims to encourage more junior barristers to gain an international perspective on legal issues and help them thrive in an increasingly globalised legal market.

The 2013 programme continues to be supported by COMBAR, CBA, FLBA, LCLCBA, PIBA, TECBAR, and the Northern Circuit. We are delighted to welcome the Competition Law Association as a new sponsor for 2013. Grants are now available to junior barrister members of the CLA.

The application deadlines for 2013 are 19 April and 6 September. Full information is available on the Bar Council website at
