EBA-Asters Legal School has been recognized as the best CSR project on the Ukrainian legal market according to the National CSR Business Cases Contest 2015. It is accompanied with the diploma of honour within the CIS Best in CSR contest run by Sustainable Business magazine.
Remarking on the developments, Asters Managing Partner Oleksiy Didkovskiy noted: "This recognition signifies Asters' leading role on the market and its reputation among our clients and peers. The Legal School project is a new benchmark in the development of Asters' corporate social responsibility, and we will continue doing our best in the CSR sphere making a valuable input into the development of Ukraine".
"Despite a large number of law universities in Ukraine, the problem of quality of the legal education remains topical. It caused a large demand for high quality educational programs among the representatives of the Ukrainian legal community. The Legal School project, launched jointly by EBA and Asters, for more than 2 years has been proving its importance as the only regular and free platform for the experience exchange among lawyers in Ukraine", – Yaroslav Kutovyi, European Business Association Education Team Leader, comments.
ЕВА-Аsters Legal School is a unique free of charge program for Ukrainian legal practitioners aiming at sharing experience and best practices. The seventh season of EBA-Asters Legal School will start late February 2016.
