Membership of the IBA is open to all members of the legal profession, including attorneys, counsellors, solicitors, barristers, advocates, members of the judiciary, full-time professors, students of law, and everyone else who is versed in the law.
Membership of a committee is one of the most important benefits of being a member of the IBA. The committees are an integral part of your IBA experience, and exist to help you network, build your profile and improve your practice.
The committees are separated into three divisions: the Legal Practice Division (LPD), Public and Professional Interest Division (PPID), and Regional Fora.
Committees constitute a wide array of projects and activities, focusing on issues relating to the majority of law practice areas and professional interests.
Joining a specific committee opens the door to the committee’s projects and events, such as open business meetings, committee retreats, committee sessions at the IBA Annual Conference (conference registration as a delegate required), or committee dinners during the annual and specialist conferences (open to the registered participants of the conference).
