IBA student membership is designed to enrich the educational experience of law students and bridge the gap between education and practice. With members from over 70 countries the IBA Law Students' Committee is vibrant and diverse which allows students, from around the world, to communicate with one another whilst learning more about the legal profession and the latest developments in international law. The Law Students' Committee is a platform for students to access the wealth of information and experience available through the IBA and its committees.
