CCBE supports BAK in procedural law reform

January 13th, 2017 § 0 comments

The Bar Association of Kosovo (BAK) has requested support from the CCBE regarding the Law on Civil Procedure Code, namely the provisions related to representation in courts. The current provisions would allow any person in their capacity to act to represent a person in court, which both BAK and CCBE find very problematic. Moreover, the CCBE draws attention to the fact there are dissuasive conditions for lawyers to represent themselves and participate in the work of the Judicial and Prosecutorial Councils in Kosovo. The conditions are such that lawyers that become members of these councils are obliged to suspend their activity as lawyers for a period of 5 years. For more information, read the letter here.
