Welcome to the ICA Committee on Cooperative Law

ICA-CLC is a thematic committee constituted by the General Assembly, with the objective of giving independent advice to the ICA on cooperative law, which is broadly defined to include all legal Rules that shape the cooperative institution and regulate its operations. The committee is composed of legal experts from multiple jurisdictions who are well versed with cooperatives. These experts are recommended and appointed by the four regions of the ICA and the ICA Board. The current ICA-CLC will be constituted for its four-year term on 13 October 2019, during the ICA Global Conference on Cooperatives for Development and General Assembly in Kigali (Rwanda).
