Lawyers find solution
Over 120 lawyers and scientists from Belarus, Russia, the CIS and Eastern European states gather in Minsk for international conference dedicated to 25th anniversary of Belarusian Republican Union of Lawyers
The conference is held annually, explains Irina Orlovskaya, the Executive Director of the Belarusian Union of Lawyers. She notes that this year’s meeting dealt with topical issues, in an international format. She tells us, “Since the Union of Lawyers unites specialists from various spheres of activity, and the conference is an international event, we’ve taken the common topic of Integration and Law: Experience, State and Prospects of Development. Major areas include integration in the sphere of alternative ways to solve conflict, reform of the Belarusian judicial system, and the development of arbitrage and mediation.
In particular, Russian colleagues have shared their experience, enabling us to build on our knowledge of others’ mistakes. Integration of law and the development of legal relations with Russia, Georgia and other partners is another area of interest. We’ve discussed the difficulties arising from changes in the systems of advocacy and notarization in Belarus, as well as Eurasian Economic Union legislation, mechanisms of protecting foreign investments within the CIS, and other acute problems in the sphere of integration and law.”
