Tags:

The Georgian Bar Association in partnership with the Council of Europe is delighted to host International Conference of Advocates for the seventh consecutive year. The Conference will take place in Tbilisi – a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-religious city on the crossroads of history which attracts visitors since 5th century AD when it became the capital city of Georgia and which represents a nice blend of both East and West.

The Conference will focus on the issue of “the Role of Bar Associations and Law Societies in Effective Administration of Justice” and it will showcase the presentations of Council of Europe experts on European standards and presentations of Bar leaders on country perspectives concerning the following areas:

– Key aspects of independence of legal profession and of their professional unions;
– Importance and the ways of effective cooperation among Bar, Judiciary and Prosecution;
– Interrelationship between the use of social networks by advocates and their ethical obligations in the context of freedom of expression.

The best practices will be analyzed and compiled in a joint working document which will be shared with all the participants and subsequently published for further guidance and reference for the benefit of the profession of lawyer in the countries concerned.
