IABA’s Purpose

For decades the International Association of Boalt Alumni in Europe (IABA) has dedicated itself to facilitating and maintaining contacts both among overseas alumni, as well as between alumni and Berkeley Law and its Faculty. Although its activity is primarily in Europe, it is open to all alumni and former visiting scholars. As a long-standing alumni organisation in Europe, IABA has undertaken to play an active role in Berkeley Law’s development of an international alumni network. In this respect it also welcomes contacts with BerkleyLaw alumni and other alumni organisations.

History and Organisation

IABA has a long history: In 1967 European LLM alumni decided to found an international alumni association This was the birth of IABA. In 1968 the first annual general meeting was held in Strassbourg and IABA was formally constituted under French law. In 1984 it was subsequently incorporated as a non-profit society under Swiss law and is domiciled in Switzerland today.

Annual Reunion

Since 1968 IABA holds an annual reunion with its general assembly in a different city each year. This meeting is an event with a broad social programme, in which spouses and accompanying persons are welcome. Our 2019 annual event will take place in  Athens Greece from June 21 to June 23, 2018.
