The Bar in Switzerland

The Bar is one of the key institutions of the legal system in Switzerland, its main function being to maintain the link between the public and the state. The complexity and specificity of the Swiss judicial system, the norms of substantive and procedural law encourage the parties, as a rule, to turn to lawyers for assistance. Hence the lawyer’s special status and the high demands with which he is faced. All these issues are examined in detail in this article.
