Today, Ukraine is on complicated resuscitation stage of its development as a universal, powerful, young European country. The main purpose is to provide the best results in the development of independent Ukraine with the help of huge efforts of legislative, executive and judiciary branches. During the reform process, the irreversible changes are necessary to provide appropriate multi-purpose functioning of the state.
Properly, state and civil society by joint efforts start to move in a certain way together, it’s forming guarantees the development of democracy and democratic culture without of which no civilized country can exist.
The Revolution of Dignity and restart of governance became the obvious necessity for resolute changes. Long-standing issues such as formation of new coalition and new democratic government, reforms in various public sectors from health care reform to law enforcement reform were implemented in act.
In its turn, the European Union Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) from October 28, 1988 entrenched an obligation of each country by legislation to form an independent body of lawyers’ self-government, which will unite the specialists of the all fields of law and will provide keeping all European legislation on each lawyer inside a state and decrease the risks of violation of professional rights.
Therefore, development and approval of relevant documents by public authorities, was the first step which initiated the legal existence of such institutions as the All-Ukrainian Supreme Legal Council.
Conduction of the legislative work in the field of regulation and establishing of cooperation between the legislative branch and the lawyers’ self-government in Ukraine was the next stage.
As for today, the lawyers were and remain the main driving mechanism of state of law. Exclusively, the lawyers are those to whom we trust to protect us, our rights and interests in case of violation.
The All-Ukrainian Supreme Legal Council is a legal power and the foundation of staff of any public and private institutions and companies not only in Ukraine, but all over the world.
The All-Ukrainian Supreme Legal Council is ready to protect each member of the legal self-government provided that the approval standards will be carried out of the legal and ethical behavior. This is a base of solidarity lawyers’ responsibility before the legal self-government of Ukraine and per contra. The All-Ukrainian Supreme Legal Council is interested in the formation of self-governments only from a number of decent lawyers, reliable professionals with unblemished reputation.
We began the long and difficult way. We expect a large number of organizational work and I am confident that we can meet the needs of lawyers in new, revived and independent country. TheAll-Ukrainian Supreme Legal Council invites all future and practicing lawyers to participate in the formation of a new concept of jurisprudence and legal self-government.
