Law, Justice and Development Week 2020 - Legal Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic

November 16-19, 2020


  • Due to the unprecedented conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, LJD Week 2020 will be held virtually on November 16-19 around the theme of Legal Responses during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Despite the virtual format, we look forward to hosting impactful and engaging conversations that address real-time realities and challenges in relation to this year’s theme.

    In lieu of the call for proposals, we have invited LJD Week Sponsors and Partners to play a leadership role in shaping the agenda for LJD Week 2020 based on their unique intellectual and technical expertise.

    The role of law in global development solutions continues to be critical to our mission of ending extreme poverty. We look forward to virtually welcoming our colleagues, partners, and sponsors in November.

    We will provide more information as they become available. Thank you for your continued support and inspiration. 

    Please stay safe and healthy.
