Asters' Partner Speaks at the All-Ukrainian Legal Week

Aster's senior partner Armen Khachaturyan participated in the roundtable discussion "Current Challenges of the Legal Services Market (Financial Crisis and Social Responsibility)" held on 9 December 2008 as part of the first all-Ukrainian Legal Week.

In his remarks Mr. Khachaturyan raised the issue of social responsibility as an integral part of legal profession. He pointed out at the necessity to establish certain rules and requirements regarding social activities of lawyers and ethics of practice of law by a single professional organization which would unite the legal profession in Ukraine based on the principles underlying professional activities of lawyers in the most developed nations of the world. Social responsibility is not only charity and sponsorship, but also provision of highly qualitative legal services, lobbying of logical and responsible statutes, "fair play" in work (abstention from paybacks, bribes, etc.), raising respectful attitude toward the rule of law as part of national character, - stated Mr. Khachaturyan.

The "Legal Week" is an all-Ukrainian action held this year on 8-12 December so that it is timed to the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10 December 1948) and to Human Rights Day (celebrated annually worldwide on 10 December). The event was initiated by the Coordination Council of Young Lawyers at the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. It was supported by the Ministry of Justice and brought together a large number of legal professionals.
