Lex:lead is an organisation of international lawyers dedicated to economic development and the improvement of lives in developing nations. They offer an annual essay competition on topics of law and development to students in the world’s least developed countries.
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 and place their students in internships with the World Bank and other partners.
As part of its pro bono program, LEX Africa sponsored two students in Lex:lead’s 2019 essay competition, Mr Sylvester Tokolosi, a law student at the University of Malawi and Brima Fullah-Kebbie, a law student from Sierra Leone studying with the University of London in Ghana.
LEX Africa is delighted to have assisted with this initiative and wish both Sylvester and Brima all success in their future careers.
