Lex:lead is a group of international lawyers and friends who support economic development focusing on the world’s least developed countries. They offer an annual essay competition on topics of law and development to students from eligible countries for one-time US$500 awards.
In 2015 they also started placing their students in internships with the World Bank and NGOs and in 2018 we began offering mentoring to our winners.
Launched with funding from the International Bar Association Foundation, Lex:lead is a partner to the World Bank-supported Global Forum on Law, Justice, and Development.
