” A World Ruled by Law, Not Force”
The WJA was formed in 1963 in response to an international outcry for a free and open forum. This forum allows for judges, lawyers, law professors and other professionals from around the world to work cooperatively to raise public support for the institutions that govern and enforce the administration of international law.
As a non-governmental organization with special consultative status at the UN Economic and Social Council, the WJA finds an alternative method to reach the international community. We have worked closely with governments, non-governmental organizations and international associations to show how nations can constructively use, not forgo, their sovereignty through international law. With our support, legal decision-makers from around the world work together as individuals, rather than representatives of a particular country, class or ideology.
With nearly 50 years of accomplishments, the WJA is one of the few organizations working with such a broad range of stakeholders to promote the Rule of Law as the path towards world peace. Our members include sitting and retired Chief Justices, judges, government officials, law professors, lawyers and students from over 140 different countries. We have National Presidents in 85 countries and our Board of Governors represents every continent and aspect of the legal profession. read more >>
