Conference Materials (In Progress)

The ABILA is part of the global International Law Association preeminent international non-governmental organization involved in developing and restating international law. Currently, for example, the ILA has consultative status with a number of United Nations specialized agencies as an international non-governmental organization and plays a unique role in drafting treaties, resolutions, and other international instruments.

Internationally, the ABILA chooses and nominates committee members for the ILA to help prepare draft treaties and studies in collaboration with lawyers from other global branches of the ILA. Nationally, ABILA forms its own committees which advocate for particular positions on international legal issues.
