(*) The freedom of expression for lawyers is increasingly under pressure over the past few years. All the more reason to make this the subject of this seminar. The Basic Principles on the Role of Lawyers the United Nations note that lawyers have the right to make their voice heard in public: ‘In particular, they shall have the right to take part in public discussion of matters concerning the law, the administration of justice and the promotion and protection of human rights.’
