International Legal Aid Conference
The ILF co-founded the biennial International Legal Aid Conference (ILAC) in 2014, bringing together legal experts, government officials, public defenders, and civil society organizations from around the world. The conference is dedicated to addressing the challenges of ensuring access to quality legal aid services for the poor and vulnerable.
This unique platform for exchange is a catalyst for progress. After 2016, Myanmar’s delegation came away with the resolve and technical support to spearhead a national legal aid law.
2020 marks the fourth conference of its kind, following the inaugural conference held in Johannesburg, South Africa in June 2014, the second conference held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in November 2016 and the third conference held in Tbilisi, Georgia in November 2018.
The conference is co-hosted by The International Legal Foundation (ILF), the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
