    • Free membership in ITA as a Young ITA Member (does not include membership on the Advisory Board)
    • Free attendance at Young ITA Talks # programs, Young ITA meetings and the ITA Forum in Dallas
    • Young ITA member discounts at the ITA Workshop, Young ITA Roundtables and all other ITA programs, publications and online educational products
    • Opportunity to serve in the Young ITA leadership

  • More details, including new leadership opportunities and access to the Young ITA LinkedIn group, will be sent to you soon and presented during the June 14-16 ITA Annual Meeting and 29th ITA Workshop: Challenges to the Legitimacy of International Arbitration in Dallas.

We are excited about the exceptional opportunities there now will be for young lawyers to get involved in ITA and to enhance their professional development as well as the ITA community. 

Young lawyers under 40 who wish to join Young ITA may do so here, and may register for the Workshop at the member discount here.

We encourage you to forward this announcement to your colleagues under 40 and all of the young lawyers in your organization so they can join Young ITA now. If you have any questions, please contact Krishonne Johnson at

We look forward to seeing you in Dallas in June at the first meeting of the new Young ITA.
