The India Committee is a forum for ABA International members who have an interest in India legal, regulatory and policy matters, both in the private and public international law spheres. The Committee facilitates information sharing, analysis, and review on these matters, with a focus on the evolving Indo-US relationship. Key objectives include facilitation of trade and investment in the private domain, while concurrently supporting democratic institutions in the public domain. The Committee believes in creating links and understanding between the legal fraternity, bar associations, law students, business organizations in India and the US, as well as other countries, in an effort to support the global Rule of Law.
