The IALL scholarships program continues this year, marking the return of in-person conferences at Stanford in 2022. The program will provide financial assistance in the form of bursaries to assist law librarians and local Swiss librarians in attending the IALL’s 41st Annual Course “Like Clockwork? Multilateralism and International Law in Geneva.” The course will take place in Geneva, Switzerland 8-11 October 2023.
The course website is now live at https://iall.org/conf2023/ and registration will soon be open. The local planning committee in Geneva is hard at work creating an informative and exciting course. We hope the bursary program will help make attendance and participation possible for IALL members and non-members.
