Republic of Kosovo

The Republic of Kosovo has become a full member of the International Bar Association through its new local affiliate, the Kosovo Chamber of Attorneys at Law.

Mark Ellis, the Executive Director of the IBA, said that the Kosovo Chamber of Attorneys at Law was accepted after an extensive debate over the issue of whether Kosovo is eligible for membership, since according to the IBA Constitution, only states are allowed membership. After a thorough debate and analysis, IBA experts reached the conclusion that the Republic of Kosovo fulfills the requirements of the IBA Constitution.
