The International Professional and Legal Development Grant Programme - last chance to apply this year

The Bar European Group, Commercial Bar Association, Criminal Bar Association, Family Law Bar Association, London Common Law and Commercial Bar Association and Technology and Construction Bar Association together with the Bar Council Scholarships Trust fund a grant programme which offers financial assistance to participate in international legal events and conferences to SBA members of seven years’ Call or less and who are in practice. The event must take place before the end of 2011 and contribute to members’ professional development and legal practice.

The cost of participating in such events is shared equally between the applicant, their SBA and the Trust. The grant programme thereby funds up to two thirds of the cost of participating in an international legal event. The third and final deadline for applications to the grant programme is 17:00 on 30 September.
