Supported by German Cooperation and implemented in partnership with Deutsche Gessellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Young Palestinian Lawyer Fellowship (YPLF) brings together young Palestinian lawyers and their foreign counterparts for knowledge exchange and professional development. The YPLF includes a writing competition, moot court competition, presentations regarding international law as applied to the question of Palestine, and workshops on practical lawyering skills, centered around a conference taking place in Ramallah, July 18-22 2016. Scholarships will be awarded for outstanding papers, arguments, and oral briefs.
The YPLF is open to lawyers of all backgrounds who are in their first seven years of practice. Palestinians lawyers and law students (including diaspora Palestinians) are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have demonstrated proficiency in English. Candidates can access the online application form and learn more about the fellowship by visiting the website at www.yplf.org. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the program FAQ before applying.
The YPLF fosters knowledge exchange, mentoring, and professional cooperation between the Palestinian and global legal communities through its educational components, including writing and mooting competitions, as well as driving sustained cross-border relationships amongst the participants
Please note that a stipend for accommodation costs associated with conference participation will be offered on a case by case basis.
