Kosovo Lawyers Study Ethics in Ireland


On April 29, a delegation of eight members of the Kosovo Chamber of Advocates’ (KCA) Ethics and Discipline Committee traveled to Dublin for a study tour as part of the ABA-sponsored project to revise the KCA Ethics Code and disciplinary system.  The study trip was arranged and organized by World Learning in Kosovo.

The delegation spent six days as the guests of the Law Society of Ireland, a national organization of lawyers (solicitors) of Ireland. The main goal of the study visit was to introduce the experience of their Irish counterparts in the field of legal ethics and discipline, which in turn might serve as a basis for developing a new and functional disciplinary system for the Kosovo Chamber of Advocates. The KCA members were able to observe how the disciplinary systems for both solicitors and barristers operated in Ireland.

Currently the KCA Ethics & Disciplinary Committee is working on developing a new disciplinary model for Kosovo which will be sent for approval to the KCA’s Executive Board and later to the KCA Assembly this summer.
