Fee Waiver and Travel Grant

The International Association of Legal Ethics (IAOLE) and the International Legal Ethics Conference (ILEC) seek to promote teaching, research, vocational training programs and policy initiatives concerning legal ethics. A limited number of registration waivers and travel grants will be awarded to allow some scholars and teachers who work in the field of legal ethics, and cannot otherwise afford the full cost of the ILEC Conference, to attend the 2020 conference. To be considered for such a waiver or grant, please email Scott Cummings with the following information:

  1. The name of the institution with which you are affiliated, your position there and brief description of your activities concerning legal ethics within last two years. Please also provide information about any other organizations through which you play a role in promoting legal ethics initiatives.
  2. Your anticipated conference role (i.e., presenter, moderator, attendee). If you will be part of a presentation or panel at the conference, please provide the title.
  3. A brief explanation of the financial circumstances that support your request. Please estimate how many percent of your average month net income represent the conference fee ($350 USD for early bird / $400 USD for regular registration).
  4. Whether you have attended in the past and, if so, the ILEC conferences that you attended.

In addition to the information provided by the applicant above, the waiver [and grant] process will take into account ILEC’s wish to broaden geographical representation of those attending the conference and the number of people from the same institution requesting a waiver.
