President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

The Law Society is in receipt of a letter from the International Bar Association (IBA) expressing interest in sponsoring young lawyers to attend the IBA taking place from 7-12 October 2018 in Rome, Italy. The Secretariat has been requested to shortlist six young lawyers who should complete the form here and meet the criteria below:
• Should have over 3 years practice experience;
• Must disclose if they are related to an Officer of the IBA;
• Must not have attended a previous IBA Annual Conference;
• Must write a short essay (maximum 500 words) on the topic “Technology’s impact on legal services”;
• Must have sufficient proficiency in English to benefit from attending, as conference sessions are in English;
• Applicant should be 35 years old or less.

The ULS will send six applicants to IBA from whom the IBA judging panel will only select at least three recipients /applicants and will offer them a place to go to the conference fully funded by the IBA. Any applications sent directly to IBA will not be considered.

Important to note is that the IBA will arrange accommodation for the recipients directly with their hotel contractor who will send a confirmation email to each recipient. Also note that before applying you should be able to cater for your ticket fare which will be reimbursed by the IBA after the conference. Participants selected for the programme will receive:
• Free registration for the IBA Annual Conference, 7-12 October 2018, Rome Italy
• A contribution towards a return economy flight to Rome
• Accommodation costs (room and breakfast) at a selected hotel while attending the conference. This will be organized by the IBA
• A stipend of 50 EUR a day

To take part in this process, kindly fill in the attached application form and hand deliver to the Uganda Law Society addressed to:
Chief Executive Officer
Uganda Law Society,
Plot 5A, John Babiiha Street
P.O Box 426 Kampala, Uganda

Applications should be delivered to Uganda Law Society Secretariat Plot 5A Acacia Avenue before the 12th of February 2018. Only hard copy applications will be considered and applicants are urged to register their applications in the registration book at the reception as they deliver their applications.

Yours Sincerely,

Francis Gimara
