Ford Foundation Legal Workshops
Over a ten year period from 1965 to 1976 the Institute was fortunate to receive grants from the Ford Foundation to help fund: a major expansion in the programme of Fellowships for young lawyers from developing countries; to fill gaps in the Institute's holdings of American legal materials; to invite an American law Professor each year to base themselves at the IALS for 6 months; and to finance a series of legal workshops in London for law teachers in British universities.
In July 1966, thanks to the Ford Foundation Grant, the first legal workshop ever held in the United Kingdom was organised by the Institute. The subject was: Family Law.
