About the Committee
The Immigration and Nationality Law Committee is concerned with all aspects of immigration and nationality law on a worldwide basis, including business-related immigration, family reunion policies, refugees and compassionate cases.
The committee aims to provide a forum for the discussion of comparative data on immigration and nationality policies of countries worldwide.
The Mission and focus of the committee is to provide a platform for lawyers practising immigration laws to receive input and update about the immigration laws of their country and also immigration laws and procedures of other jurisdictions. We achieve this by holding annual conferences and presentation of papers, newsletters and providing other online resources to enhance the knowledge of its member in multiple jurisdictions.
Additionally, the Immigration and Nationality Law Committee works with the following committees to form the Human Resources Section:
The IBA Global Employment Institute is becoming the leading voice and authority on global HR issues by virtue of having a number of the world's leading labour and employment practitioners in its ranks, and the support and resource of the world's largest association of international lawyers.
The Human Resources Section Board was established in 2014 in order to coordinate activities and joint efforts within the Section. Board members consist of the current and immediate past Chairs of each of the committees in the Section.
