The training offered the Kyrgyz lawyers the opportunity to learn more about the exisiting disciplinary law for lawyers in the Netherlands, core values for lawyers and disciplinary proceedings. The training was conducted by two lawyer-volunteers who have extensive experience in the field of disciplinary law and ethics for lawyers. The Justice Defenders Program of the American Bar Association also participated in the training.

Amongst other things, our lawyer-volunteers and participants discussed about the need for an independent Bar Association and regulations on ethics for lawyers.
