November 2020 – Aníbal Sabater has been appointed president of the International Association of Lawyers (UIA) Commission on “The Future of the Lawyer.” Crated in 1927, the UIA is an international non-governmental organization, aimed at promoting the rule of law and the basic principles of the legal profession, as well as to foster legal education through congresses, seminars, working groups, and commission. It operates in English, French, and Spanish and brings together more than 2,200 lawyers from around the world. The 150-member Commission on the Future of the Lawyer analyzes the way social, political, and economic changes affect the work of legal professionals. Its recent focus has been on the effect of the pandemic on the practice of law.
Aníbal has been involved with UIA for several years, for instance speaking at several of its events (the 2019 Congress in Luxembourg, 2016 Congress in Budapest, and more recently at an online session on COVID-19’s influence on the development of lawyers’ activity). Chaffetz Lindsey partner Andrew Poplinger also spoke about COVID-19’s impact on International Arbitration at a UIA webinar in May. Chaffetz Lindsey’s partner Yasmine Lahlou and counsel Rainbow Willard also collaborate on a variety of UIA projects.
