Lex:lead is a group of international lawyers and friends who support economic development focusing on the world's least developed countries. They offer an annual essay competition on topics of law and development to the world's least developed countries. In this way we transfer one-time US$500 awards to students addressing our fundamental question: what can law do to reduce poverty and foster economic growth? In 2015 we also started placing students in internships through the World Bank and other institutions. Launched with funding from the International Bar Association Foundation, Lex:lead is an intellectual partner to the World Bank-supported Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development.
In 2015 Moses Baguma, an LL.B IV student Makerere University School of Law, particpated in the Lex-Lead Scholarship essay competition emerging among the winners of 500 Usd which was paid as his tuition for one semester to the University tuition account. Today, he is pleased to serve as Lex-Lead co-ambassador to Uganda and excited to share this opportunity with you.
