IBA guides, rules and other free materials

As well as journals, committee publications, books and online content, the IBA also publishes a wealth of information across all aspects of law to assist and support the international legal community.

Here you can find a library of freely accessible documents in online (PDF) format, from ethical principles for the profession, to arbitration guidelines; task force reports on important issues and IBA statements and resolutions.

Many IBA committees also produce guidelines relevant to their practice area. Check the committee publications and projects pages to find out more, or, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact publications@int-bar.org
