What Is the Role of Judges and Lawyers in Tackling Corruption?
The Law Society of England and Wales has joined forces with Transparency International to organize an event on the role of the legal community in checking corruption.
The event will take place during Geneva Peace Week and discuss how the judicial system and legal profession can tackle corruption and in turn become strong catalysts for building peaceful societies.
It will explore what impact the establishment of a robust and independent judiciary and independent legal profession can have on peace building, which will include comparing and sharing international best practices to prevent violent conflicts.
Case studies in selected jurisdictions, which may include Azerbaijan, Guatemala, and Nigeria will be discussed during the event which is scheduled to take place on November 7, 2018.
