The purpose of this Association is to create a network to effectively leverage knowledge and provide opportunities for intellectual exchange in the global community which has been created through these programmes since 1993.

The Annual Membership fee is 50 Euros for lawyers, jurists, academics, and others, and 25 Euros for young professionals and students (under the age of 35 on 1 January 2020).
