Supporting Awareness of Legal Ethics

27 April 2018 Legal Ethics Chair Sophie Chachava speaks about the GBA Legal Ethics Commission

On April 14, the USAID/PROLoG-supported Legal Ethics Chair at New Vision University organized a public lecture on “Publicity of Ethics Commission’s Decisions in the Context of Personal Data Protection.” Protection of the personal data included in the decisions of the Legal Ethics Commission of the Georgian Bar Association (GBA) has been an active issue for the past two years.   

The main speakers at the lecture were Sophie Chachava, GBA Legal Ethics Chair, and Tamta Khatiashvili, head of New Vision University Legal Aid Center. The speakers discussed the legal ethics code, the personal data protection law, and relevant court decisions. Ms. Chachava also talked about the decision of the European Court of Justice in a case involving Google. The public lecture was attended by lawyers, students and legal experts. The aim of the event was to raise the awareness of important issues related to legal ethics in Georgia.
