War in Ukraine from a lawyers’ perspective: voicing solidarity among lawyers
Following the invasion of Ukraine, local lawyers have been seriously compromised in the ability to continue their job. In its wake, the same goes for Belarusian and Russian lawyers, who have been subjected to increased repressive measures. As such, the wider consequences of this war place an immense strain on the ability of Ukrainian, Belarusian and Russian lawyers to continue practising their profession. Lawyers for Lawyers is concerned about the wider consequences the war might have for lawyers, and wants to speak out in support of the lawyers who continue to protect and further the rule of law and human rights. This page contains informative posts on the situation. In this way, Lawyers for Lawyers wants to show solidarity with those lawyers who are under threat and give them a voice.
