The Hague Young Bar Association raises €8000 for Lawyers for Lawyers
The Hague Young Bar Association has raised €8000 for Lawyers for Lawyers through their ”Hapweg” auction and additional donations.
On 16 July 2021, the The Hague Young Bar Association organized a barbecue and auction to raise money for Lawyers for Lawyers. The event, called the “Hapweg”, took place in The Hague, in line with the current covid regulations. Through the auction the The Hague Young Bar Association raised €6665. A cheque was handed to the President of our board, Irma van den Berg. After the event, we received the great news that the amount was increased to €8000 through additional donations by attendees of the event and the The Hague Young Bar Association itself.
Lawyers for Lawyers is very grateful for the donation and thanks the The Hague Young Bar Association for their support.
