Lex-led 2023 Annual Essay Competition for African Students (Up to 16 $500)

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.

In 2015 they also started placing their students in internships with the World Bank and NGOs and in 2018 they began offering mentoring to their 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.

The competition invites top-ranked essays answering this year’s essay question: How effective have laws protecting the rights of children been to reduce poverty and support economic development? How could they be improved?
