Kosovo Lawyers Visit the Irish Bar Council and Irish Law Society

 

January 2009

A delegation of three lawyers from the Kosovo Chamber of Advocates (KCA) andan ABA ROLI staffer visited Dublin in December as part of a new joint initiative by the Irish  Bar Council and the Irish Law Society to promotethe rule of law in the developing world.

ABA ROLI has worked closely with the Irish Law Society and the KCA to fostera cooperative relationship between the two entities. In the fall, ABA ROLI hosted two members of the Irish Law Society to facilitate the KCA strategic planning process. To assist with this study tour, ABA ROLI sent Senior Staff Attorney Fatmir Kutllovci with the KCA group to assist with translation and other logistics.

The delegation was interviewed by the Irish daily newspaper, Irish Times,which ran two stories about the visit. To read the stories, click the links here:
