Inauguration of Myanmar's first national i ndependent l awyers' a ssociation

Nobel Peace Prize winner Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and IBA President David W Rivkin opened the inaugural meetings of the newly established Independent Lawyers' Association of Myanmar (ILAM) during a special ceremony in Naypitaw on 19 th January, 2016. The launch was hosted by the IBAHRI and the Parliamentary Committee on Rule of Law and Tranquility, and has been accomplished through an ongoing IBAHRI capacity-building programme.

ILAM is governed through a Central Committee of 120 lawyers elected from each state and region. This body is responsible for setting policies and procedures. A Central Executive Committee (CEC) made up of 30 members, has responsibility of implementing those protocols.

Aung San Suu Kyi commented: 'We hope that ILAM can take the lead in upholding professional standards and ethics among lawyers in Burma and ensure that they are able to make a major contribution to the country's progress. On behalf of the Parliamentary Committee, I express gratitude to the IBAHRI for guiding and supporting this initiative.'

During the inaugural meetings ILAM's first constitution was adopted, CEC office bearers were elected, and the Central Committee gave the CEC an initial mandate for ILAM's early years of operation. Under the leadership of ILAM's first President, Mr. Sein Win Chan, ILAM will focus on legal ethics, continuing legal education, law reform, membership and communications.
