A former juvenile court judge who worked on international juvenile law issues, Paul Seeman chaired the International Committee of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, and traveled to a number of different countries including France, the Netherlands, and Ireland as a member of the International Association of Youth and Family Court Magistrates to participate in conferences such as the 17th International Congress in Belfast in 2006.

Founded and registered in Brussels (Belgium) in 1928 and in 1963, the International Association of Youth and Family Judges and Magistrates (IAYFJM) is an NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) with consultative status at the Council of Europe. It represents worldwide efforts to establish links between judges from different countries but also with other international associations working in the sector of the protection of youth and family. It promotes research on international problems facing the operation of the courts and various laws relating to youth and family.
Membership of the IAYFJM is comprised of national associations and committed individuals from all parts of the globe, who exercise functions as youth and family court judges or functions within professional services directly linked to youth and family justice or welfare. The international congresses of the IAYFJM take place every four years and are an opportunity for exchanges between people from all over the world who are engaged in child or family protection to discuss matters falling within the jurisdiction of the Family Courts or Youth Courts.
