Bar Association Action in Defence of the Rule of Law


The International Bar Association’s Bar Issues Commission (BIC) promotes, protects and enforces the role of an independent legal profession in the interest of its 200 bar association members worldwide and is committed to promoting and defending the principles of the IBA’s Rule of Law resolution.

The BIC works in partnership with the IBA Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI), and will motivate its members to take appropriate actions on the reports and findings of IBAHRI fact-finding delegations and interventions.
