Young Practitioners' Award
In 2017, as a 30th Anniversary initiative, IPEBLA announced the Young Practitioners’ Award.
The purpose of the award is to encourage Young Practitioners who practice or research in the field of pension and employee benefits law to explore issues of significance that have an international and/or comparative aspect. The person selected for the award is funded to attend the Biennial IPEBLA conference (on the basis of an economy return flight, 3 nights’ accommodation in the conference hotel and registration fees).
Requirements to enter:
A panel appointed by the IPEBLA Steering Committee will review all papers submitted and will determine which author will be selected for the award.
All papers recommended by the selection panel will also be published in a special edition of the IPEBLA journal – the “International Pension Lawyer”.
