Europese advocatenorganisatie kondigt op de site de Europese juristendag aan:
European Lawyers Day 10 December 2014
European Lawyers Day 2014 celebrates the common values of lawyers and their role in civil society in promoting the rule of law.
Of all of the basic human rights that have been enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in the European Convention on Human Rights, the right to privacy and protection of personal information is the one most generally under threat through mass governmental surveillance, as revealed over the past year. When rights are violated, citizens’ faith in the administration of justice and the rule of law weakens. As lawyers, it is our role in society to uphold and defend the rule of law for citizens. Lawyer-client confidentiality and the protection of client data are key components of this role. Without trust and confidentiality, access to justice and the rule of law cannot be guaranteed.
This page is intended to assist Bars and Law Societies at the European, national and local level in their preparations for European Lawyers Day 2014. Please do not hesitate to contact our Communications Officer, Dawn Turek (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or comments.
We look forward to following your events and to celebrating a memorable European Lawyers Day 2014!
De Nederlandse advocatenorganisatie (Nederlandse Orde van Advocaten) doet voor zover mij bekend hier niet aan mee. Geen idee waarom niet, want de NOVA is wel aangesloten. Om mee te doen, zul je dus naar het buitenland moeten.
