Legal Impact Act

consolidated legal framework

The ‘Legal Impact Act’ is a consolidated collection of legislative proposals, sample clauses and recommended actions for governments, businesses, individuals and other organizations. The ‘Legal Impact Act’ is published by the Legal Impact Society. The Society is assembling a Board of Editors composed of the world’s leading legal scholars and practitioners. The individual chapters and paragraphs are distributed by the Board of Editors to renowned legal authors with outstanding expertise in their field.

The entire work is regularly renewed and reissued to meet the standards and benchmarks that we set ourselves. The work appears in print once a year. The most up-to-date form is available online for members at any time.

The Board of Editors is composed of the following members:

  • Andreas Orbig (Co-Chair)
  • Marc Theiner (Co-Chair)

The Board of Editors is elected by our Board of Directors for a three-year term each.

The Board of Editors needs to consist of:

  • at least seven Editors;
  • at least one of each region (Americas, EMEA, APAC), and
  • exact one member of the Board of Directors

Up to two additional Editors can be elected by the ordinary annual meeting for a one-year term.

To qualify to be elected to the Board of Editors each candidate needs:

  • to be a graduated law professional from any law school;
  • to have at least two years of post-graduate work experience, whether in practical law or research, and
  • to be a LIS Member or Affiliate.


The Board of Editors names one individual to co-head the different chapters. They are free in their decisions but need to comply with the ‘Rules of Procedure for chapter-heads’.
