IBA Virtually Together Conference 2020
This year the IBA is running it’s annual weekly conference as Virtually Together Conference spanning a whole month. More than 250 sessions have been included in the programme, which will start with an Opening Address and culminate in the Rule of Law Symposium. The live sessions have been scheduled to suit all time zones to give maximum opportunity to our members across the globe to participate.
A vital part of the IBA 2020 – Virtually Together Conference is that the sessions will be linked with creative professional and social networking opportunities, taking place throughout the Conference enabling delegates to greet old friends and make new contacts in the virtual world.
