Study on Arab Lawyers Working Conditions & Tools
2003.
Organized by: .
The role of the lawyers is an integral part of the judicial system. This role will be more effective through the development of the quality of their work, which will lead to the improvement of judiciary sentences, since the lawyers are supposed to submit clear demands based on legal principles and consolidated by judgments and citations. Considering the prominent role that lawyers play in the modernization of legal and judiciary work, a study will be performed to describe the lawyer's status and the legal profession needs (statistical study), and the necessary tools aiming at improving the exercise of lawyers profession in order to enhance the legal practice, to activate the judiciary work and to render access to justice easier and cost-effective. For these reasons, POGAR will contribute in conducting a field legal study aiming to collect information about myriad issues such as the working conditions of Arab lawyers and the sources used by judges and lawyers in their work (paper form, electronic form, internet); identify the need to Arab references and foreign sources, describe the frequently used sources (encyclopedia, books, periodicals) published by Bar associations, ministries of Justice and private sector, and finally provide training for lawyers.
