Commissions

The commissions and working groups organised by the Union Internationale des Avocats (International Association of Lawyers - UIA) work in specific areas in the fields of business law and general practice, as well as human rights law.

These commissions and working groups publish newsletters and contributions from members who would like to see their work read by other lawyers who work in the same field in other countries.

In addition, the commissions offer members a forum for exchanging information and expertise, especially at the annual congresses but also at seminars or other events.
