Valentyn Gvozdiy, Deputy Head of the Ukrainian National Bar Association and Ukrainian Attorneys’ Council, Vice-President of the Ukrainian Nationwide Association of Ukrainian Attorneys and managing partner at Gvozdiy and Oberkovych Law Firm, has expressed the hope that young researchers will continue their work in studying the little-known pages of the history of Ukrainian advocacy. Winning the contest has and will continue to inspire prize winners to make startling discoveries.

In his turn, the head of the contest jury, Oleksandr Yarmysh (associate member of Ukraine’s National Academy of Law Studies, head of the International Law Association, Doctor of Law) thanked Gvozdiy & Oberkovych Law Firm for its assistance in the organization of the contest and financial support to the project. Mr Yarmysh noted that the works presented to the contest contain new, or little-known, documents and materials related to the problems of organization and operation of Ukrainian advocacy and biographies of our prominent human rights activists. In particular, a new large-scale work on the history of Ukrainian advocacy will be prepared precisely on the basis of these materials, and a respective manual will be published.

The supervisor of the “History of Ukrainian advocacy” project Iryna Vasylyk, Associate Professor at the Social and Political Disciplines Department of the Kyiv Management and Entrepreneurship University, Candidate of History, added that the contest that was held is testimony to the fact that students and young researchers from different regions have great interest in the issues of history of the bar.
