On 10 October 2017, the College of Law hosted an IPBA Networking Event in Sydney during the International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference week. The evening provided a chance to meet up with fellow IPBA members, friends and local practitioners as well as to promote the 2018 IPBA Annual Conference in Manila. We had well over 100 attendees on the evening who participated in the fine Australian wine tasting event while enjoying the company of good friends and live jazz music. That evening, Denis McNamara (IPBA President) announced the proposed collaboration with The College of Law to offer an IPBA/College co-branded LLM (Applied Law) program which is to be offered in early 2018. Perry Pe (IPBA President-Elect) also attended to promote the upcoming 2018 IPBA Annual Meeting and Conference in Manila; the 2018 IPBA Conference promotional video can be found at https://www.ipba2018.com/.
