IBA Annual Conference - Information Session 28 April 2016

On 28 April, Invest NI, in collaboration with the Law Society of Northern Ireland and the Bar of Northern Ireland, will run a short information session for lawyers interested in attending the IBA Annual Conference.

This year's IBA Annual Conference takes place from 18 - 23 September 2016 in Washington DC.

The IBA is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, Bar Associations and Law Societies.

It has a worldwide membership of 55,000 lawyers from over 190 Bar Associations and Law Societies. At the conference, attended by some 6000 lawyers, there will be in excess of 180 working sessions covering all areas of practice and also a variety of social functions providing an opportunity to develop client networks.

Following Northern Ireland’s very successful presence at the 2015 conference in Vienna, Invest NI in co-operation with the Law Society of Northern Ireland and the Bar of Northern Ireland, are encouraging lawyers interested in pursuing export opportunities to join an Invest NI-supported sector mission to this global event.
