On May 31, 2002, Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, signed the new Federal Law “On the advocates’ activity and the Bar in the Russian Federation”.
According to Article 1 of that Law, advocates, who receive their status according to a special procedure, render professional qualified legal assistance to individuals and legal entities (principals) for the purpose of protection of their rights, liberties and interests as well as ensuring access to justice.
Within three years of the Law’s enactment, the professional holiday of the advocates was established at the II All-Russian Congress of Advocates. The holiday is celebrated each May 31 by the entire professional community.
