Past LAWASIA Annual and Biennial Conferences

About the LAWASIA annual conference

Originally held as a biennial event, the  first conference of members was held in Malaysia in 1968.  The conference offers a stage to promote cross-jurisdictional exchanges of legal information and education, as a voice of the legal profession and as a conduit for encouraging adherence to commonly shared principles of rule of law, high standards in legal practice and protection of human rights.
