The MDTF JSS team prepared a new analytic document that could inform future justice reform activities. The ‘Comparative Analysis of Bar Associations and Law Societies in Select European Jurisdictions’ report analyzes and compares the structure, role and tasks of Bar Associations and Law Societies across a number of select European jurisdictions. The report looks at bar associations in Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, England and Wales, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Serbia, and Spain. It takes a closer look at a number of features and responsibilities of the bars: entrance to the Bar, decision making bodies in the Bar, administrative capacities of the Bar, lawyers fee, free legal aid , mandatory defense, pro bono work, complaints, discipline and external supervisory role over the Bar. The report is available in English here.
