Advisory role

The committees are formed on the basis of § 6 (1) of the Code of Procedure of the Estonian Bar Association with the aim of assisting and advising organisations and members of the Bar Association in law-making and practical issues relating to relevant laws, the analysis of relevant legislation and legal practices, and drafting of amendments.

We are proud of our team and wish our experts luck!
