CCBE supports Georgian Bar in Constitutional reforms

February 7th, 2017 § 0 comments

The Georgian Bar Association is participating in the process of amending the Constitution of Georgia. CCBE welcomed the fact that the Georgian lawyers were invited to give their input in shaping the constitutional framework for the legal profession in a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia, who is at the same time the Chairman of the State Constitutional Commission. The proposed amendments to the Constitution aim to ensure the right to a fair trial by guaranteeing, inter alia, uniform legal representation in courts, the role of lawyers in legal defence and the importance of the independence of the Bar.
