Eurasia/Russia Committee

The Eurasia/Russia Committee unites ABA members around the world who are interested in the countries of the Eurasian region: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. The Committee focuses on issues relevant to the region and, through its activities, promotes dialogue and cooperation between legal professionals in business, academic, non-profit, and government spheres. The Committee’s current particular emphasis has been on legal issues relating to Russia and U.S.-Russian relations; however, the Committee welcomes a broad range of projects and members.


Message from the Committee Co-Chairs

Welcome to the Russia and Eurasia Committee! Whether your practice focuses on the Eurasian region or you are simply interested in the legal developments in that part of the world, you will find many exciting opportunities in our Committee to contribute to international publications, participate in our events and special projects, exchange ideas, and expand your professional network.

We also welcome our colleagues from the Eurasian region who are interested in getting involved with the Section of International Law, the leader in strengthening professional relationships between lawyers from more than a hundred countries, legal education, the development of international legal policy, and the promotion of the rule of law.

We collaborate with other committees, law firms, academic institutions, and other organizations to develop and organize various projects of mutual interest. Recent successful examples include organizing a series of forums on business relations between the United States and the countries of the former Soviet Union and the development of results of the survey on legal obstacles to innovation in Russia in collaboration with the Higher School of Economics in Nizhny Novgorod.

If you are not already a member, please join us today! If you would like to receive more information, please contact the Committee Co-Chairs.
