An attorney is a friend and counsellor to a person, who, according to his sincere conviction, is always innocent or not so much and not what he is accused of.

The Round table on the topic “The violation of rights and guarantees in the legal profession and the attorneys’ security violation as the threat to the justice”
24.02.2017

The Round table on the topic “The violation of rights and guarantees in the legal profession and the attorneys’ security violation as the threat to the justice”, initiated by Ukrainian Bar Association, was held on February 11, 2016. The increase in number of the attorneys’ rights and security violation became the driving force for the event. The Round Table took place in the Verkhovna Rada Committee for European Integration for the purpose to lay information to the parliamentarians on the problems and the attorneys’ anxiety. Ukrainian Bar Association provided the participants of the Round Table with the examples of cases of the rights and guarantees violation in the legal profession and the attorneys’ personal security violation. “We can claim that the police officers draw an analogy between the attorney and his client. The examples of the prevention from the normal performance of the duties in legal profession, assaults on the attorney, damage to the personal property and even murders have become more frequent. It’s not connected with the certain category of cases the attorney deals with, i.e. petty crimes or the political cases” – Denis Buhay, President of the UBA, claimed opening the Round Table.

Igor Fomin, a managing partner in Fomin&Partners, paid attention to the necessity to strengthen the legislative rights and guarantees in legal profession. “A large number of our opponents breaking the law have the legal practicing certificate in their pockets. Such cases interfere in the work. If there are the facts of violations, they must be disbarred” – he mentioned.

Consequently, the Attorneys passed a resolution to consolidate maximally their efforts for common actions. Currently, every participant in the discussion is preparing the propositions and ideas which will be unified and realized later in the form of common campaigns and events engaging the Mass Media, and in the form of particular legislative propositions.
