Committee index

Individual members join committees depending on their practice areas and interests, and benefit from being able to communicate with fellow members worldwide. These groups also organise specialist conferences where members can meet to discuss the latest issues within their field and make international contacts. The committees may publish regular news and articles for their members and/or undertake projects of relevance to their practice area.
