The AIBL brings together members from all sectors of the legal community, including corporate counsel, private practitioners and lawyers working with international organizations and NGOs, for regular luncheons with speakers, professional activities and a variety of social events.
The AIBL was founded in 1974 as an informal forum for the exchange of ideas between in-house lawyers working with banks and multinational companies based in Geneva. Over time, the AIBL’s membership has grown to include lawyers working in private practice and with many different international organizations and NGOs. At present, the AIBL has over 150 members representing all sectors of the legal community in the region around Lake Geneva.
The AIBL’s Rules provide that the objects of the association are as follows:
• to provide a forum for members and their guests to discuss and exchange experiences in regard to international legal issues and other professional matters of mutual interest;
• to promote professional initiatives for the benefit of members;
• to promote social functions among members.
