Welcome to the Australian Branch of the International Law Association (ILA)

About Us

The ILA was founded in Brussels in 1873, with the belief that international law is key to peace, justice and development in a globalised world. Its constitutional objectives are “the study, clarification and development of international law, both public and private, and the furtherance of international understanding and respect for international law”. The ILA has consultative status, as an international non-governmental organisation, with a number of the United Nations specialised agencies.

The ILA has a vibrant and growing community of over 4,500 members and 63 branches worldwide, including the Australian Branch.

We are grateful for our long term supporters
