👉 What is the International Bar Association (IBA)?

  • The International Bar Association (IBA), established in 1947, is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies.

  • The IBA influences the development of international law reform and shapes the future of the legal profession throughout the world.

  • It has a membership of over 80,000 individual lawyers and more than 190 bar associations and law societies spanning 170 countries. It has considerable expertise in providing assistance to the global legal community.

👉 What does the partnership between IBA & Jus Mundi offer?

  • The IBA x Jus Mundi Partnership is the first collaborative initiative to collect non-confidential commercial arbitration awards and related case documents worldwide and make them easily accessible to the global legal community. This exclusive partnership will help promote accessibility in commercial arbitration.

👉 Why did IBA choose Jus Mundi?

  • The IBA’s subcommittee on International Commercial Arbitration Case Law has two principal tasks: To collect non-confidential international commercial arbitration awards on a truly global basis, and to write annual reports on specific substantive legal issues based on those collected international commercial arbitration awards.

  • The IBA chose Jus Mundi because it is a great source for research with the potential to contribute to the development of law.

  • Jus Mundi agreed to make access to the database available at no cost, so that users without an account can search all the arbitration awards collected (without Jus Mundi’s premium features).

  • With Jus Mundi’s assistance, the IBA has been able to move forward, collect more arbitrary awards and achieve the purposes of the Subcommittee.
