The International Bar Association (IBA) – the global voice of the legal profession – is the leading organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies. Established in 1947, before long after the creation of the United Nations, it was born out of the conviction that an organisation made up of the world's bar associations could contribute to global stability and peace through the management of justice. In the following 70 years from its creation, the organisation has progressed as of an association included exclusively of bar associations and law societies, to one that incorporates individual international lawyers and entire law firms. The present membership is passed more than 80,000 individual international lawyers from most of the world’s leading law firms and a number of 190 bar associations and law societies across more than 170 countries.
