ЕВА-Аsters Legal School is a unique free of charge platform for Ukrainian legal practitioners to share their experience and best practices in legal support and protection of business.
Asters law firm initiated the founding of the Legal School in Kyiv in 2013. The project was implemented in partnership with the European Business Association (premier organization for foreign business in Ukraine, which brings together approximately 900 European, Ukrainian and international companies).
The structure and content of the program of the Legal School was primarily aimed at advancing knowledge of the professionals with integrated legal skills practicing law in their particular fields.
At first, the School's speakers included only Asters partners and associates who delivered lectures to the EBA members, in particular legal practitioners, in-house lawyers and managers wishing to improve their legal awareness or further enhance their legal knowledge. The success of the first seasons of the Legal School prompted us to expand the Legal School speakers' panel by in-house lawyers of the largest local and international companies.
In addition to the participation of Asters' lawyers as speakers, the Firm also provides organizational support to the project. The Legal School classes take place in the office of Asters law firm, located in the heart of Kyiv, allowing participants to reach the location easily. Asters coordinates the event and provides the information support of the project. The Legal School's news can be found on the official websites of Asters and EBA. Also, to inform the existing and potential participants of the Legal School the project page in the Facebook social network has been created. The information about the initiative is distributed through specialized legal media.
For 3 years EBA-Asters Legal School has been proving the relevance and feasibility of the project as the only regular and free platform for the experience exchange among lawyers in Ukraine.
In 2015 EBA-Asters Legal School was awarded as the best CSR project on the Ukrainian legal market according to the results of the National CSR Business Cases Contest.
