Two committees  – on international treaties and on international justice and arbitration – are established within the board. The new board will focus on issues relating to accession to international treaties, prepare opinions on international public and private law, review the drafts of federal laws and regulations in these fields of law prepared by the Ministry of Justice, and discuss prospects for the development of international public and private law.

The new board includes representatives of academia, lawyers practicing in international public and private law, and federal civil servants. Board members serve on a pro bono basis. The Board will be chaired by Mikhail Galperin, Russian Federation’s Representative at the European Court of Human Rights and Deputy Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation.
