Lawyer Day in Belarus (04/12)

Every year on the first Sunday of December, Belarus celebrates Lawyer's Day in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Belarus dated March 26, 1998 No. 157 “On public holidays, holidays and memorable dates in the Republic of Belarus”.

The establishment of this holiday is, first of all, a tribute to people who stand guard over the rights and legitimate interests of citizens, recognition of the merits of all those who have devoted their lives to legal activities that are so necessary for the state.

Today, when a legal civil society has been created in the Republic of Belarus, in which everyone is equal before the law and has the right to equal protection of rights and legitimate interests, the role of lawyers is especially significant.
