Summary of Activities

Given the fact that IPBA members hail from over 60 jurisdictions throughout the world, the IPBA Journal is an important source of information to allow members to gain a common understanding of the issues confronting the practice of law in the Asia-Pacific region. The Publications Committee manages the quarterly publication of the IPBA Journal, the official journal of the IPBA, together with Ninehills Media.

The IPBA Journal

Members of the Publications Committee frequently discuss and decide upon the specific issues confronting practicing attorneys in the Asia-Pacific region that should be covered by the IPBA Journal. Additionally, the Committee actively encourages IPBA members to submit articles for publication. Please refer to the following schedule for submission deadlines for articles to be considered for publication in the IPBA Journal:

In addition to the IPBA Journal, the Publications Committee occasionally manages the publication of articles/papers on topics of current interest to attorneys practicing in the Asia-Pacific region.
Please feel free to contact either Mr. John Wilson or Ms. Priti Suri if you are interested in submitting an article for publication by the IPBA or if you have any questions, comments or ideas with regard to the IPBA’s publications.
