Sponsorship of the Institute's Activities

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law is a registered charity (No 209425). It relies on membership fees, sponsorship and charitable donations from organisations and individuals for its income. It receives no permanent funding from the government.

For this reason the Institute needs sustained help to ensure that it continues to meet its objectives and promote the importance of legal thinking. If you would like to support a specific initiative and would like to know more about the Institute's current programmes, please consult the Research section of this website.

The Institute can offer a number of events-related and other packages through its sponsorship programme at which sponsors have the opportunity to target their products and services to a well-informed legal community, whilst increasing members' and non-members' awareness of their organization's interests.
