International Bar Association Conference 2017

The IBA’s purpose is to exchange knowledge, discuss issues impacting cross-border law and create legal services in international trade. But to do this successfully, they needed the support and global connectivity of a city with an excellent legal industry. Sydney was the ideal choice, not just for its legal reputation, but also its location and natural capacity to inspire progress.
