Moritz Maurer appointed as Swiss National Representative of the IBA's Young Lawyers' Committee (YLC).

The YLC focusses on young lawyers and their specific aims and interests, serving as an ‘entrance door’ for young lawyers and putting them into contact with the rest of the Divisions to become further involved in the IBA. The goal of all the YLC’s activities is to create a win-win situation in which young lawyers can enhance their skills and networks thanks to IBA programmes, conferences and other projects, while simultaneously providing the IBA and its constituents with fresh ideas and a vivid contact to the next generation of legal experts and counsels.

The mission of the National Representatives is to facilitate contacts between young IBA members within a jurisdiction, and to strengthen the links between them and their national and local young lawyers’ associations and the international community.
