From its inception in 1925, the primary purpose of the American Foreign Law Association (AFLA) has been to promote the understanding and application of foreign, comparative and international law, to cooperate with other professional organizations involved in such fields and to support relevant legal research and writing.
AFLA members have opportunities to:
- Keep up-to-date on recent developments in foreign, comparative and international law
- Foster an appreciation of the common elements among varied legal systems
- Be at the forefront of the internationalization of the legal profession
- Meet with other international lawyers, judges and academics
