2022 IBA Annual Conference


2022 IBA Annual Conference

Presented by the International Bar Association

JAMS is a proud sponsor of the International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference, the leading conference for legal professionals worldwide to meet, share knowledge, build contacts and develop business.

The IBA Annual Conference is open to both members and non-members of the IBA, with lawyers from over 130 jurisdictions and all parts of the legal profession attending, including lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel, human rights advocates, judges, bar leaders, regulators and government representatives. This unique mix of perspectives provides a rich environment for discussion, debate and learning as well as the opportunity to develop lasting business relationships and lifelong friendships.

The conference will feature more than 200 sessions. These vary widely, from core substantive committee sessions which cover most sectors and practice areas, to more specialised topics, providing an opportunity to focus on your own areas of interest.
