The International Bar Association (IBA) is conducting a survey to gauge the interests of lawyers globally.

Endorsing the survey, IBA President Horacio Bernardes Neto said:

“The Legal Policy and Research Unit are working with the Young Lawyers’ Committee (YLC) on a research project focusing on the interests of young lawyers around the world.

‘The survey forms part of the YLC’s ongoing work of identifying, discussing and promoting issues involving young lawyers across the global legal profession. Young lawyers are the future leaders of the legal profession, therefore it is in all of our best interests that talented individuals stay working in the law to contribute to its advancement, reform and championing of the rule of law. What young lawyers experience and how their interests are managed will undoubtedly affect their future at their workplace, the legal sector in which they work and the legal profession more generally.

“I wholeheartedly encourage your contribution to this anonymous survey.”

In an announcement heralding the survey, the global lawyers’ association said: “The survey has been created to gather data on the collective interests, priorities and concerns of young lawyers (those aged 40 and under for the purposes of this survey). We hope to use this data, and any trends that may appear, to generate dialogue between young lawyers and the current leaders of the legal profession, and encourage positive changes (where necessary). We also hope to produce a publication at the conclusion of the survey, depending on the trends that may appear.

“The survey is available to both IBA members and non-members, and can be completed in English or Spanish. If you are a lawyer aged 40 or under, your participation in our survey will be greatly appreciated.”
