Competition 2023-2024: sponsorship announcement

The ILBF is delighted to announce that the 2023-2024 law undergraduate essay competition is sponsored by international law firm McDermott Will & Emery.

The 2023-2024 essay competition is a fantastic opportunity for law undergraduates in the UK to win an internship with McDermott. The firm is committed to providing opportunities to the next generation of lawyers, as well as promoting pro bono activities across the firm to create positive change around the world. The ILBF is immensely grateful for the support of McDermott for the 2023-2024 essay competition and our mission to share legal resources with organisations overseas.

Sponsoring the ILBF’s law undergraduate essay competition allows McDermott Will & Emery to marry two of its passions: supporting and encouraging the future careers of law students and, equally important, giving back to communities around the world where resources are stretched or non-existent. We wish all entrants to the competition the best of luck!
