Ukrainian Bar Association, July 27, 2022: Since February 2022, our primary objective has been to resist Russian aggression against Ukraine on the legal front. We urge world leaders to impose radical sanctions against Russia and establish comprehensive accountability and damages mechanisms. In addition, we support Ukrainian citizens and lawyers affected by the war. However, the Ukrainian Bar Association needs support from the international legal community to survive this fateful time and continue our activities.
To reconcile our striving for international cooperation and our mission of serving the people of Ukraine, we opened our doors for global participation and invite foreign lawyers to become international members of the UBA.
International membership at the UBA is available to all foreign lawyers who wish to support and join the activities of the UBA.
What we offer:
- regular receipt of information in English about the UBA activities (positions papers, news, events, etc.);
- access to information about Ukrainian lawyers, the opportunity to find partners in Ukraine;
- One complimentary ticket to any international UBA conference;
- the opportunity to hold events and consultations with the UBA Committees on any Ukrainian legislation or practice issue.
The annual membership fee is EUR 200. Lawyers can join the community by following the link: https://2022.uba.ua/en/membership/international-participant/
We will be glad to see international lawyers as full-fledged members of our association. We believe that experience exchange and new network opportunities for both Ukrainian and international members of the UBA would be a great way to develop their legal practice and help the Ukrainian legal community grow and thrive.
