The World Jurist Association seeks to promote and foster world peace through the Rule of Law. Since its inception in 1963, the organization has worked closely with Chief Justices, judges, Ministers of Justice, Attorneys General, lawyers,law professors and other scholars. Our efforts are recognized by Heads of State and Government and the United Nations.

The organization acheives its goals through several types of activities, including hosting seminars and conferences around the world, and publishing informational and education legal materials.

Currently the World Jurist Association is reaffirming its commitment to the Rule of Law by building the Rule of Law Monument, which will stand on the Austro-Hungarian border, where the first cut in the Iron Curtain occured 10 years ago. Contact the WJA to become a part of this.
