The objectives of the ILA are primarily pursued through the substantive work of its international committees. There are currently 15 committees on topics as diverse as International Monetary Law, Global Health Law, Space Law, and Sea Level Rise. In addition, there are 2 Study/Interest Groups which encourage the involvement of younger professionals in the Association’s work. Current areas of study include the UN Sanctions and International Law and the International Law of Regional Organisations.
Membership of the Association is spread among Branches throughout the world. The ILA welcomes as members all those interested in its objectives, which are pursued primarily through the work of its International Committees, and the focal point of its activities is the series of Biennial Conferences. The ILA's membership ranges from lawyers in private practice, academia, government and the judiciary, to non-lawyer experts from commercial, industrial and financial spheres, and representatives of bodies such as shipping and arbitration organisations and chambers of commerce.
