ILA Reporter is the official blog of the International Law Association (Australian Branch).

It provides leading analysis, commentary and discussion on issues in public and private international law, which have bearing on Australia and the wider region.

The ILA was founded in Brussels in 1873. It has consultative status as an international Non-Governmental Organisation, with a number of the United Nations specialised agencies.

The objectives of the International Law Association (Australian Branch) are to promote study, elucidation and advancement of international law, both public and private, encourage the study of comparative law and the making of proposals to unify law in the face of conflicts of law, and further international understanding and goodwill amongst persons of Australian citizenship and normally resident in Australia.
