The International Bar Association (IBA), established in 1947, is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, bar associations, law firms and law societies.
Inspired by the vision of the United Nations, the IBA was founded in the same spirit, just before the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was proclaimed in 1948.
The IBA organises over 50 specialist conferences globally each year as well as the IBA Annual Conference, the largest gathering of international lawyers globally, attracting over 6,000 individuals in 2018.
The International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference is the premier conference for legal professionals worldwide to meet, share knowledge, network, build contacts and develop business. It also served to advance the development of law and its role in business and society and to learn from the experience of others.
The 2019 IBA Annual Conference was held at the COEX Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul on the 22-27 September 2019.
