Section on Public and Professional Interest (SPPI)

The SPPI constitutes a wide array of projects, activities, committees and other entities focusing on issues and professional interests that make the practice of law a profession and not only an occupation. 

The objectives of the SPPI are:

  • to promote an interchange of information and views among its members about the public and professional interest activities of the legal profession throughout the world;
  • to support and promote those activities;
  • to facilitate communication among its members and to be active in the SPPI through its committees and other groupings;
  • to undertake such related projects as may be approved from time to time by the SPPI’s Council.
