IBA India Working Group

About the India Working Group

The India Working Group (IWG) was set up in late 2016 and is made up of 28 lawyers representing firms across India. The IWG was formed to act in an advisory capacity to the IBA officers of the Asia Pacific Regional Forum (APF), senior IBA officers and the Asia Office regarding various aspects of the IBA’s activities in India and specific to Indian members. The main aims of the IWG are to engage Indian members to become more actively involved in IBA activities, to increase the number of Indian members of the IBA, and to identify and implement ways the IBA can assist lawyers in India with issues pertinent to the legal profession there.
