Valentyn Gvozdiy Delivered a Speech at the Conference Entitled “Court Reform, Strategic Planning and Further Effect”

16.06.2015 Mr. Valentyn Gvozdiy, Managing Partner of Gvozdiy and Oberkovych Law Firm, as Deputy Chairman of the Bar Council of Ukraine, spoke at the conference named “Court reform: strategic planning and further effect”, held at the Supreme Court of Ukraine with the support from the European Union on June 15, 2015.

In the course of his report Mr. Gvozdiy pointed out, that the Law of Ukraine “On the Bar and Advocate’s Activity”, which was adopted in 2012, is an example of the best advocate’s formation in European countries. That indicates the success of the initial phase of the Advocacy system reforming in Ukraine. In particular, he drew participants’ attention to the fact, that existing opposition of the Advocacy and the free secondary legal aid system is created artificially as a result of certain drawbacks of legislation. He noticed the extreme need in improving regulation of advocate`s guarantees and rights at the legislative level.

The participants actively discussed the implementation of the court system reform, court proceedings and related legal institutions for 2015-2020. In particular, they identified one of the main issues of the reform strategy. That is the further reforming of the Ukrainian Advocacy system by strengthening guarantees of advocate`s activity and ensuring the free secondary legal aid.
