IBA Legal Regulators Directory

The International Bar Association (IBA) compiled a list of organisations that are responsible for regulating the legal profession around the world.

The directory covers the main regulated legal profession(s) in each country. It divides the regulatory functions governing legal practice into three stages: admission, practice and discipline. It indicates the body responsible for each function and how it may be contacted. Where possible, links to the relevant organisations’ websites are also included.
