Now reading : European Lawyers Day – No justice without independent lawyers
The annual European Lawyers Day celebrates the common values of lawyers and their intrinsic role in the defence and promotion of the rule of law, as well as their contribution to the justice system. Each Law Society and Bar is asked to encourage its members to organise events, publish educational material and/or conduct other programmes that promote citizens’ awareness of the European Lawyers Day theme.
In 2021 the theme of the European Lawyers Day is “No justice without independent lawyers”. It highlights the importance of ensuring and preserving this independence for the benefit of citizens’ rights.
On 25 October the Luxembourg Bar offered free consultations in various areas of law as part of this year’s programme. Our firm was represented by four of our associates:
- Lucas Adam, Employment Law
- Lucy Furtado, Real Estate Law
- Laure Nacache, Civil and Commercial Leases
- Camille Reckinger, Contract Law
On 28 October, the Luxembourg Bar Association, of which Partner, Pit Reckinger is the Vice-Chairman, organised a conference and panel discussion on the subject of the lawyer as a profession and its independence, with participation of the Luxembourg Minister of Justice Sam Tanson.
