The Balkans Regional Rule of Law Network (BRRLN) is convening a conference for its Bar Presidents and leaders from the Civil Society sector in late March in Belgrade.
This conference will be an opportunity for the region’s bar leadership to meet and exchange experience and ideas about developing their bar’s capacity and how to lead their bars into the future. ABA ROLI has invited experts from Western European bars to discuss how to develop bar capacity to improve member services in key areas and to raise the standing of the bar as a voice for reform within the larger justice community. This conference will also establish a steering committee for to develop the governing structure for BRRLN which will be presented to the entire BRRLN membership for approval. This conference will also be an occasion to execute a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between BRRLN and the member bars regarding mutual support in the areas of advocate independence and bar capacity.
The region’s bars face similar issues and have common interests and we believe that by supporting one another the bars are stronger and better able to meet those challenges. The MOU initiative came from the BRRLN Bar Capacity Working Group and will provide a framework for cooperation regarding other BRRLN activities. The conference will also be an opportunity to present to the Committee members projects each BRRLN working group has developed.
