AILA’s Innovation and Technology Committee prepares and equips members with “better tools to deliver legal services to their clients,” which includes focusing on digitization of processes, collaborating with tech companies to facilitate innovation, and developing educational resources. The Global Migration Section “provides global practitioners with a structured forum and means to share ideas and information,” while the Military Committee provides resources, knowledge and legal counsel to members of the United States Armed Forces.
