The LCLCBA is a participating Specialist Bar Association in the Bar Council’s International Legal and Professional Development Grants programme.

This programme provides financial assistance for junior barristers (under seven years’ practice) who are members of a relevant SBA (including this Association) to take part in international legal events and conferences. Under this scheme, the cost of travel, accommodation etc, up to a maximum of £2,500 per applicant per event, is shared equally between the SBA, the Bar Council and the applicant.

Full guidance, and the current mandatory application form and budget spreadsheet, can be found on the Bar Council web site at this external link (opens in a new window).

Completed application forms and budget spreadsheets should be submitted to the LCLCBA Committee member Ed Peters at [email protected].

The remaining deadlines (and better not left until the last minute) for application in 2017 are

  • Monday 6 March
  • Monday 22 May and
