The FINANCIAL — A round table on ethics and disciplinary issues in the Georgian Bar Association’s legal framework was held in Tbilisi last week as part of the joint EU-Council of Europe project for ‘Support to the Georgian Bar Association’.
The round table, bringing together members of the Georgian Bar Association Ethics Commission as well as European experts, aimed to identify gaps in the regulatory framework of the Association, as well as solutions to meet European standards, according to EU Neighbourhood Info.
Participants discussed the current situation and agreed to start work on legislative/regulatory changes. The CoE will follow the process and present concrete proposals, which will eventually be reflected in the legislative/regulatory framework.
The joint project is funded by the EU and the CoE through their Programmatic Cooperation Framework for Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus, working in partnership with Eastern Partners to help them meet CoE benchmarks in human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and improve the lives of citizens.
