Bar Issues Commission Regulation Committee

The IBA Bar Issues Commission (BIC) Regulation Committee monitors, researches and exchanges information about developments in lawyer regulation around the world.

Directory of Regulators of the Legal Profession

The Committee has produced a global directory of regulators of lawyers as a resource for practising lawyers and bar associations.

The directory identifies the bodies who are responsible in each jurisdiction for the regulation of lawyers at various key stages, from qualification/entry to the profession, through ethics and conduct rules to disciplinary matters. The directory also gives some basic details on the governing legislation in those jurisdictions where there is a statutory basis for the profession and provides links to the relevant legislation where possible.

We are grateful to a large number of bar associations and individual IBA members who helped to verify the information contained in this directory. All of those who assisted us in producing this resource are listed on the linked page.

The directory is available online as well as in PDF format:
