The study of CP violation in the baryon sector is still a relatively new field and offers the possi-
bility to make many CP measurements which could complement those performed in the meson
sector. This is especially true of late given the large number of baryons currently being produced
at the LHC. Such measurements could help further over-constrain the CKM unitary triangle, as
well as furthering our understand of baryongenesis. These proceedings will give an overview of
the current state of the search for CP violation in the baryon sector.
