The UIA is the only Association of multicultural and multilingual lawyers worldwide. For more than 85 years this organization has fought in defence of legal practice and the promotion of international relations, cooperation and the training of lawyers. It brings together more than 2,000 members from 150 countries and its Congress, which is held every year in a different city, brings together lawyers from all over the world.
Spain has hosted the annual UIA Congress three times in its 85 years of existence (twice in Madrid and once in Seville).
